    Hi @garrett-eclipse,
    the admin bar link is actually the current way to deal with Gutenberg. The UI had been changing a lot in the last few months before the release of the block editor in WordPress core so I choose a conservative approach waiting for things to stabilise.
    Moreover, the link above “Move to Trash” was somehow a relic from the days when there were just a few ways to edit WordPress UI

    In the next versions, as part of a major redesign of the plugin, I’ll try to investigate which can be the best approach to integrate in thew new UI.
    I’m open to suggestions! 🙂

    Thanks for your interest, I hope I answered your question!

    Thanks @lopo for sure I appreciate that. I’ll advise my clients use the admin bar link for now.

    Looking at the block editor there’s two placements that come to mind for me at least;
    1. Up in the block editor top bar where Preview/Update is something like this;

    2. As another button before the move to trash something like this;

    Either of these would be helpful as if you go into full screen mode the admin bar vanishes and with it your ability to duplicate.

    Hope that helps,
