Users request that nodes can be cloned, meaning that a copy of node can be placed under a different parent in such a way that the copy is guaranteed to be the same as its origin.
There is a third-party implementation of cloning, with imperfections like shallow copying and a failure to copy formatting.
The feature has originally been suggested based on the model application Leo - an outliner.
