    The user's manual indicates that when using workflow a page should not be available for public view when duplicated until it is explicitly published ( We have page workflow enabled in our instance of Sitefinity. However, when we duplicate a page, it gets published automatically. We're running version 3.7.2057.2:1. Is this a known issue?  Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

    When you duplicate a page this page is not published and not visible in the navigation controls bound to SiteMapDataSource. First you click "duplicate page", then you have to save the page and  you are forced to go through workflow steps. I attached a short video from our demo website.

    Most probably you use some custom navigation which does not handle PageWorkflow
