If you duplicate a field in the data model, you can simply rename the duplicate field to create a new field. If you rename the wrong version of the field, it will change the reference of the original field in all the gridpanels. These bugs will only show themselves much later.

This is a new behavior in Architect and a useful behavior if you could add a warning message to alert you to the fact that there are references to this field that will be updated. This will give you a chance to cancel the action and rename the other field instead.

Alternatively, the duplicate field should have a new name such and "Copy of field". Ideally both of these features would be useful.
