I don't think we have bumped into each other in either this or the official User-to-User P1 forum.
I wrote to Tech Support and was told that (2), the duplicity check has existed on the MACs. I am on a PC. That is another thing heavily bugs me: the difference between C1PRO functionality on MACs and PCs. The following example is a great way to make a point or giving a strong argument towards platform uniformity.

, I was going crazy. I couldn't find the functionality Paul was telling me about. Because I posted the thread in the PC version of C1PRO7, I had assumed that everyone engaging me on correspondence are also on a PC. Finally Paul agreed with me that my request would be a great feature for the PC version of C1PRO7.
Getting back to my original request for evolved cataloging functionality, perhaps "copy-and-delete" was poor choice of words. I should have elected to use "MOVE"
instead. I thought, in terms of basic computing, when files are "moved," they are being copied and expunged at the core. I asked this request because Lightroom has it since it came out in almost seven years ago.
To re-summarize, I started this thread because I know there are several dedicated C1PRO users and in order for feature requests to be considered, the requests must have votes. I am hoping to win your agreement and vote for the feature requests in a close, next point update of C1PRO7. When you vote, you have to log into your P1 account and write to Tech Support either referencing this thread or completely re-composing the same requests.
2) actually already exists.
Files that already exist wont be imported.
With regards to 1) we find that most customers don't use this functionality, purely as we all like to do a 'sanity' check when the import has completed and then manually delete the images.
Equally if you don't want to copy image files inside the catalog, you can reference them at their current location.
