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 !

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

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.
