in mode I see an option for "armed" and one for "motion on." I'm not sure what the difference is. Thanks.

The two NEW defaults are ARMED ( all on ) and DISARMED ( all off )

 

Motion ON is a left over from the older SW which had a big update late Dec '15.

 

I would recommend that any older MODES be copied by making new ones with the same settings but a new name and then remove/deleted

Some of the older custom modes don't work 100% when they carried over.

How does one copy a mode? ie: "All motion on."

You can't "copy" per say... but you can re-create it by adding a new mode using the same cameras/formats/etc
