Can't duplicate a group below the current group by holding alt and dragging it. Im using Photoshop CC now, I was using CS5 before and have just upgraded. This was possible in CS5. You can duplicate every other type of layer but not the group itself.

This should be fixed in Photoshop 19.0 or later. Let me know if you're still having issues.

Which specific version of Photoshop are you using (CC includes 4 major versions)?
How exactly are you attempting to duplicate the group?

Im using CC 2015.0.1

Im trying to duplicate it by holding down the alt key and dragging the group to below the current group (on the line between that group and the layer or group below) Like you would do in previous versions of Photoshop.

Im having to duplicate the group to one layer below, then move the group back up a layer.

Here's a video of the problem I'm getting. I'm holding alt when I drag the group. As you can see in the video a normal layer duplicates without a problem.

I'm on CC v.2015.1.2 and I also can't Alt-Drag to duplicate a group below. Above works fine. And layers can be Alt-Drag-duplicated above or below fine. Any update on this?
