Layout: add functionality "copy/paste data block"



As far as i know, it is not currently possible to copy one block of a layout and paste it right away in the same layout.

in older versions of Board, "dragging" a block and dropping it on a line below in the same layout was copying the block. I can't find this in Board 14.1.

The feature is a time-saving one for Board developers, especially when you want to test a small variation for an existing block having already many parameters (e.g. color alterting, or dataentry, or refer-to's, etc.) without having to create the new "test" block from scratch.

In the currenty layout editor, you can:

  1. move a block's position
  2. delete a block
  3. but not copy and paste an existing block (in yellow in the screenshot):
