There seems to be no way to copy a Data Pilot as a Data Pilot to another
worksheet or workbook.
- Selecting the Data Pilot, Copy and then Paste somewhere (on the same sheet,
another sheet or another calc-file) only copies the data

- Copying a whole worksheet containing a Data Pilot, results in a new sheet,
with something that looks like the Data Pilot (grey blocks, the same formatting)
but really isn't..(context menu isn't the data pilot context menu and the grey
block's can't be dragged)

not a defect as this has never been possible. Therefore enhancement. Not P2 as
no data loss or crash occurs.

And also a double to Issue 27611 which is easily found by a simple query for
'datapilot' and 'copy' in the description field of the query facilities.

Sorry, my fault, I didn't find that issue before..

But I don't fully agree with the duplicate status, since Issue 27611, covers
only the part about copying a "whole" worksheet.

Can this issue be reopened, as enhancement, only for the part of normal
copy-pasting a DataPilot, since this can also be a handy feature, and actually
is not covered in Issue 27611.

re-opening is not necessary as the developer is aware of this Issue and it's
refferenced in the duplicate. So this is addressed too in Issue 27611.

This problem is very annoying for me, i use a lot Datapilot and can't copy them is so painful.
This issue exist since 2004 (issue 27611), is there any chance it would be fix ?
