# How to duplicate all nodes within a node frame?

I often have to duplicate a node frame with all nodes within it. However when I just select the node frame and press Shift+D it only duplicates the node frame but not the nodes contained within it. Of course I could manually select all the nodes, but especially with large node setups this quickly becomes quite tedious.

Is there an operation or hotkey that does what I want?
