Backup Exec 2014 - Duplicating Synthetic Backups

I also posted this over on Spiceworks, but figured I'd post it here too in hopes of expediting a solution.  I just upgraded from 2010 to 2014 SP1, and while everything appears to be OK for the most part, I did run into a situation with my Synthetic backups.

In 2010 I had a policy template set up to run an Incremental daily, then a synthetic weekly and a synthetic monthly.  The monthly synthetic superseded the weekly synthetic, and then I had duplication to tape jobs set to trigger upon completion of the weekly/monthly synthetic.  The duplication job used a different media set depending on whether a weekly or monthly synthetic had been run.

After upgrading to BE 2014, all the synthetic jobs appeared to come through (the weekly and the monthly), but when I edit the backup definition only the weekly synthetic and weekly duplication jobs are not shown.  I kind of get the impression that what I'm did (or at least the way I did it) are not supported in 2014?  I'm looking for some insight on how I can duplicate my synthetic jobs to a weekly media set the first 3-4 weeks of each month, and then have them duplicate to a monthly media set the last week of each month.  If duplication jobs could supersede each other it would be easy, but apparently they cannot.

Here's what I see in BE 2014:

What am I missing?  Thanks in advance.
