Copied article does not save

I have an existing page/article titled "hot dog".  I choose "copy" from the ellipses menu.  A new page titled "copy of hot dog" appears. I then click Close.

The new page is not findable.  It's not under "Activity" or "Your work".  It's gone. 

It doesn't matter if I edit it before closing it.  It's gone. I lost a good bit of work due to this problem

The help article https://confluence.atlassian.com/doc/copy-a-page-139013.html  describes the Copy feature, but does not correspond to my experience.  I do not see a dialogue that asks for the space of the copy.

Unhappy.

@Leo TohillAfter you press on the three dots, choose copy.  Then click "publish" (not "close").  Thereafter you can move the published copy wherever you want.

Of course, NOW I know that.  But it is clearly a defect that a copied article is not saved as a draft.  It's a new article, like any other new article, the behavior should be the same.
