Description Joris Steyn 2013-11-15 22:16:20 UTC
This has been broken for quite some time. Does anyone have any thoughts on what the desired behaviour is?

Should all widgets and underlying UMLObjects be duplicated (like copy/pasting all those items individually)? Is that useful? We could also try to implement bug 85807 as the default behaviour of pasting a diagram item in the tree view.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Place one or more widgets on a diagram (eg. class -> class diagram)
2. Copy the diagram
3. Paste the diagram (to root folder, sub-folder, etc).
Actual Results:  
Umbrello 4.x: diagram does not get copied, only a seemingly random UMLObject is.

current master: OK on first look but diagram tree view item points to old diagram and UMLObjects are not cloned.

Expected Results:  
To be discussed.

What should happen when pasting to other instance of Umbrello seems obvious, see bug 327669.

Refactor decoding of clip data

Decoding of UMLObjects now uses the same code path on all clips. Fixes that
recently went to clip1 are now also active for clip2 (diagrams). List view
items are never decoded, but created in response of a signal of new UMLObjects.

When pasting clip2 in the same file, only the diagram gets duplicated and not
all contained UMLObjects, like described in feature request 85807.

Implement duplication of diagrams

The popup menu of diagram list view items now contain the standard cut/copy
menu entries. A new entry 'Duplicate' allows duplicating a diagram and all
widgets, but not the underlying UML representations.
