Description

When an object (e.g., actor) is copied and then pasted, it is placed directly
over the original copied object which often confuses the user as to whether
the paste operation was successful and users will sometimes paste a couple of
more times before realizing that the pasted objects are being pasted on top of
each other (even though there is small number changed in the title).

The paste operation should result in the pasted object being placed offset to
the originally copied object so that it is immediately clear that the copy and
paste operation was successful.

History

#1 Updated by Chad Berkley over 14 years ago

added a method in basicGraphFrame that offsets the pasted moml _location
property so that the pasted objects don't show up exactly on top of the source
objects. Right now, the paste offset is 10 pixels in the x and y direction, but
that could be increased....laura, what do you think?

I folded this change into the Ptolemy tree.

Yes, I've been meaning to do this for some time...
Another improvement would be if the newly pasted model
were selected after pasting...
