Copying a container with objects to another QVW

Is is possible to copy an entire container (with objects and in some cases, nested containers) from one QVW sheet to another QVW sheet?

I think this copy works only inside of one QVW..

Yup, that annoyed me for ages.  As in it copies the container but not the objects the container contains.

However I have noticed of late that copying and pasting a container, now seems also copy & paste the objects within.

I am not sure when this started working ok for, but suspect it was when I upgraded to 11.2 SR3 to 11.2 SR5.

So if i just right click and select Copy to Clipboard > Object and then select Paste on the other sheet it should copy everything?  I am using 11.2 SR5.

Give it a go, I'd be curious to hear if it works ok for you.

In the old times (version 9 ?) there was a way to export/import the layout of a whole sheet. This would help here but this functionality is gone, unfortunately.
