You can refile a note from the capture buffer with C-c C-w.

I added a command to /copy/ the note instead of refiling it: C-c M-w.
Finding the copying location works the same way than for refile.  So
now you can copy the item from the capture buffer to several files.

The available process is a bit different: capture, edit, refile or copy,
then finalize the capture process.

Two months of googling!  Phew.  :)

Yes -- hence the different process describe above.

Please try the new feature if you can (it is in the git master branch)
and let me know if it helps.



Thanks, I tried it out and it seems to work. Hopefully it will be useful for others too. 

Another thing I've been meaning to ask: org-capture-mode-hook seems to be triggered twice, why is that? It was also present in the previous version of org that I  used, 7.8.02 and I can confirm now it's there in the latest git version also. If it's not a bug but a desired feature can I disable it from running twice? I'd like to attach some code to it and getting the results twice is slightly annoying.
