Description Andrew Korostelev 2006-11-08 13:51:05 UTC
user can't paste copied element in diagram editor without mouse.

Separate issue is filed for this case because in all other related cases (paste
from palette or model tree) it is decided to paste element to default point on

And simple paste of element copied from the same or another diagram is still not
In the case of cut element it can't be returned to diagram without mouse.
Comment 1 Peter Lam 2006-11-21 00:19:10 UTC
Shift-Ctrl-V will be implemented to paste without a mouse click to place the
copied element(s).
Comment 2 Peter Lam 2006-11-21 18:14:53 UTC
Workaround: select the element(s) from the project (model) tree and press
Ctrl-Enter to get the selected elements appear on the diagram of focus.
Comment 3 Andrew Korostelev 2007-02-01 15:18:33 UTC
suggested workaround will force user to resize and reallign elements manually
again. All formatting will be lost.
