Description Niha 2020-07-09 08:20:34 UTC
We draw any object/shape/line/Text and provide it any animation property/properties (I provide multiple animation to single object).
If we want to use the same object with the same animation property/properties in the next slide or within that slide, we copy and paste that object.
But in Impress the object losses all it's animation properties and we will have to add all those again.

If it has been purposefully created this way then I think there should be an option for paste special.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add any Object (Text or any shape like rectangle or circle)
2. provide it with any Animation
3. now copy the oject and paste it in the next slide.

Actual Results:
only object is copied with no animation properties attached to it

Expected Results:
object to be copied with all its animation properties attached to it

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

OpenGL enabled: Yes

Copy/cut and paste ignores the animations attached to the object(s).
