Hello, Concerns the "position and size" box. It would be great to be able to copy the position of an item and then to apply it to an other without typing ! Thanks EO

as it is already possible via the "Position and Size" dialog box, I'm sure you mean the values in the status bar, correct? I've adjusted the issue's subject to reflect this

You did well ! It's possible via the dialog box, but you have to open and close it. This specific point is linked with issue 115363 Copying position via the status bar or via Rclick on Item and applying to another the same way would be the thing !

More broadly speaking: when copying an element from the status-bar (when implemented), it should actually copy an object of class corresponding to the displayed element. If pasting in an application that understands that object, then the object should be pasted. Otherwise, the textual representation of that object should be pasted. Beyond Draw, I can imagine this very usefull in Calc: e.g. selecting a column, the count is displayed. Now copying the count would copy an object of type "COUNT" on the selected range. When pasting in a cell, the corresponding formula would be pasted. Pasting somewhere else, will paste only the textual value of that count.
