Description l0f4r0 2019-03-05 23:02:41 UTC
After copying some components, it would be great to offer at least 2 choices so the user can decide where the content is going to be pasted in Draw:
- option 1: paste approximately where it was copied (current situation except that paste location is exactly the same than the copy location)
- option 2: paste where the cursor is

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Copy some elements
2. Paste them

Actual Results:
Elements are pasted exactly where they were copied

Expected Results:
Option1: elements are pasted where they were copied but translated with some pixels both vertically & horizontally so the user can distinguish any of them
Option2: elements are copied at the last position of the cursor

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

I have always been annoyed that this feature doesn't exist, it would save me a lot of time.
