Duplicating bounding box not working

I am using CS6. As instructed in the video, I tried to duplicate a bounding box by holding shift key and dragging. But its not working. Its not creating any duplicates.

Sorry re-watched the the lesson to see want you were asked to do... while in Photoshop make sure you have the "slice tool" (c) selected and hold alt/option and drag over the bounding box you want to copy and in the the position you want.

And at the end remember to name all slices by right clicking and selecting "edit slice options."

Hi Robert, thanks for your revised answer. But I found that I need to hold down both Control and Alt keys then drag and drop to create duplicate bounding box.

You want to click and drag while holding the alt/option key while on the selection tool (V) the black arrow. The arrow should change to two arrow points one black the other white as you hold down the alt/option key.

Thanks Robert for your response. I tried to follow your guide, but it does not create a duplicate bounding box. Rather, it creates a copy of the whole sliced image.
