    The default behaviour for this in Umbraco is set to "on/true" - is there a way to turn this off? I know it only creates a pointer but it's confusing to users.

    Hi Dan,

    There is no config setting or something to change this default behavior. In Umbraco.Editors.CopyController the "relate to original" option will be set to true by default. If you really want to change it you can do it here.

    function ($scope, userService, eventsService, contentResource, navigationService, appState, treeService, localizationService, notificationsService) {
        var searchText = "Search...";
        localizationService.localize("general_search").then(function (value) {
            searchText = value + "...";
        $scope.relateToOriginal = true;
        $scope.recursive = true;
        $scope.dialogTreeApi = {};

    You can find it here:

    Hi Dan,

    Did you ever find a solution to this that did not involved editing the standard Umbraco install and recompiling?

    I agree with you that this setting SHOULD NOT be checked by default because I would wager that 99% of people copying do not see this checkbox let alone even understand the ramifications of checking it.
