Important Thing:
Normal copy operation copy (to be cheched) all test case versions, the 'Copy with Ghost Steps' is going to use as version reference LATEST no matter if test case version is active or not ?
Given a look to the code the simplest (Quick & Dirty) solution is to copy ALL test case version, using GHOST for each version on step action and expected result,

Ghosting the latest version will be the normally desired result.

Is LATEST a keyword?

For example
[ghost]"Step":1,"TestCase":"TRAIN-7 ","Version":LATEST[/ghost]

I think latest is not managed will check

I will test.

Issue I reliased is when New version is made. I will test the following workaround.

Once Versioning happens all the Ghost links will be broken so the workaround process will have to be make a master test suite that is never executed to ghost from. It will be just a library of shared steps.

This loses the benefit of Test Case versioning but ghosting is a bigger productivity gain.

yes this is some kind of approach I've started to use.
Because you can point steps of test cases that belong to OTHER TEST PROJECT instead of having a master test suite that you use to provide reuse you can use a DIFFERENT TEST PROJECT named TEST REUSE or COMMON TESTS (what a great fantasy:))

Implementation use ONLY the latest version of test case been copied.

Work OK.

Not sure of performance implications of allowing a Ghost Copy of a Test Case that is already Ghosted.
