Description magrawal 2003-03-20 23:07:57 UTC
The subject is slef-explanatory. When I copy a text-box and paste it onto the 
same page, Impress pastes the new text box right over the old box. Often I need 
to make many copies of the box and if the pasted boxes overlap, I don't know how 
many boxes are there.

Ideally I would like to be able to copy a text-box and paste it where I click 
the mouse, not just near the old text box. This is a feature that even Word does 
not have.
