I have an issue with the "Manage Content and Structure" feature of my SharePoint 2010 site. In my site collection root I have 2 sub sites. Both are publishing sites with custom branding applied. Both sites are almost identical with only difference in list content type fields. The source site "Site 1" contains "Pages" library with "col1" as the additional column in the "Article Page" content type. In the second site "Site 2" same content type has "col2" as additional column.
My expection is when I copy a page from "Site1" pages library to "Site2" pages library, I will get both "col1" as well as "col2" in the "Site2" (destination) library. But what happens is very strange. Content copy works perfectly without any error but when I check the destination library, I can see the "col2" that was added to its "Article Page" content type is removed. But it's there for other content types (page, welcome page) (I added "col2" to all content types of the "pages" library)
Spent a lot of time but with no luck.
Can anyone please help?
