Copy worksheet with all radio buttons and group boxes

I have a problem duplicating worksheets within the same workbook. When I CTRL-click > create copy it only copies cells/content, but none of the radio buttons or group boxes. Why is that? Is it something to do with the fact that the objects are locked?
Please help! Oh, btw, I am using a Mac! thanks!

As far as wanting objects included when copying a range of data, be sure the object properties is NOT set to "Don't move or size with Cells."
If you have a large number of similar objects, set the property in one, then use "Format Painter" to change the others.
(This only works with "Forms" objects.)
Click "Format Painter" in the Standard toolbar. (looks like a wallpaper brush)
In Excel 2007 it is in the Clipboard section of the Home Ribbon.
Control Click the object you want to copy formating from.
Click "Format Painter" icon.
Now click the object you want the format copied to.
You can also double click the Format Painter and copy the Format to every object you click on until you click Format Painter again.

Once all the objects have the properties set, copy the entire page by hitting:
Ctrl-a to select All
Ctrl-c to copy to clipboard
In the new worksheet, click A1 and hit Ctrl-v to Paste.
Don't know how different a Mac Excel version is.
