The reason for this behavior is that, when you open one of the events in the Recurring Event series, you are opening a single instance of that Event and, therefore, the copy of that Event will behave as a Single Event. If you intend on setting up a new Recurring Event, we advise bypassing the copy process and simply creating a new Recurring Event from scratch.

There is an Idea posted to our Community page that we encourage you to vote and comment on, as this Idea proposes a software enhancement that allows for the copying of a Recurring Event. Please log into and vote on the idea below:
