Creating a duplicate of the blinky example did not work properly

I just used the “duplicate” option for my Blinky example on MBED Studio and found that it failed to copy everything across. Is this intentional.

Try basic example on MBED platform

#include “mbed.h”

int main()

DigitalOut led(LED3);

while (true) {
    led = 1;
    led = 0;



or import from below link:


The issue raised is not a programming issue, otherwise I would have tagged this question as MBED OS.

If you right click on any program listed in left hand panel of MBED Studio you are provided with a list of options. At the bottom of the list is “Delete, Duplicate, and Rename”.

I was pointing out that the Duplicate option did not work correctly, for me.

I think you just need more patience. Tried the same, and got first the same incomplete folder. But it seems to be an asynchronous operation, the folder is filled up after some time, there is a lot to copy.

Ah, that makes sense. Thanks for letting me know.
