      Description

      There are 2 ideas about making copying and moving operations easier:

      1. Implement drag and drop for nodes
      2. Implement ctrl+c/x and ctrl+v shortcuts

      In my opinion we should implement both, and they share quite some backend functionality. I see some challenges for both:

      In the d&d implementation:

      • How to navigate and expand nodes while dragging a node
      • After you drop the node, a popup must appear asking you whether you intended to copy or move the node (could we instead keep the ctrl key pressed when dragging to indicate we need a copy?)

      In the copy/paste implementation:

      • The UI should clearly indicate when a node has been 'cut'

      In both approaches:

      • You cannot give a new name to the node that you dropped/ pasted, unless we bring up a popup to facilitate this
