How to duplicate (copy) existing control on Access form.

Prior to Access 2007, it was possible to right click on a control on an Access form while in design mode and select 'duplicate' to create a copy of that control just below the existing control.  

This functionality is no longer present.  I can't even seem to find a way to copy and paste a control.

Very frustrating!  What am I missing?
