Layer > Search for Duplicates >By Geometries or Attributes

I would suggest adding 'Search for Duplicates' to the 'Layer' menu.  After selecting this menu item, user would be offerred the following choices:

  1. Search for Duplicates(Geometries) - Upon selecting this option, the user would be given the following choices: 1.)Select matches, 2.)Create New Target Layer with matches, 3.)Create New Target Layer with matches, delete Source matches on Source Layer, 4.)Delete matches on Source Layer
  2. Search for Duplicates(Attributes)- Upon selecting this option, the user would then need to 'Select Column'.  The user would be given the following choices: 1.)Select matches, 2.)Create New Target Layer with matches, 3.)Create New Target Layer with matches, delete Source matches on Source Layer, 4.)Delete matches on Source Layer

Of course, the purpose of this it to locate/identify 'Duplicates' within the dataset, those being geometrically identical, or having identical attributes within a given column(as is user selected).  The user is then afforded the opportunity to select the records, copy them to a new layer, whilst preserving the originals, copying them to a new layer, whilst deleting the originals, and simply deleting the ones that are found without any further ado.

 

Thank you,
