Why [removed by moderator] do layers get a "Copy" or "Copy 2" at the end of the layer when duplicated, instead of simply numbering them? I usually number my layers and if i duplicate a layer i have to delete this "Copy 2" stuff, and number it manually. Such a time waste for a useless feature. Photoshop obviously has the ability to number layers, but only, if theres a "Copy" in the name, so it shouldn't be hart to fix.

It allows you to either rename in or keep the copy. It tells you which is the original and which is the copy.
