FS#579 - Copy layers / blocks

Duplicate (copy, clone) a layer with or without entities on it. New name can be specified by user.

Yes - this would be a nice time saving feature! ;-)

Often I need to copy a detail, shape or an entire Building floor plan to a new layer as base for the further designing.
Yes, there is a possibility to do that in QCAD but it's still a kind of workaround.

However ... if I see how easy it already is to select something and move it in the Property Editor to a different or new layer then I like to have an additional option what could be called:
"Copy Selection to a New Layer".
Maybe placed to the right of the "+" / "Move Selection to a New Layer"

What do you think?
