Many users are thinking they can copy between schematics like they can
copy between texts.

Of course, copy/paste between schematics is certainly welcome but is
also certainly a not easy task:
A schematic is a set of basic draw items (lines, texts ...) associated
with symbols.
But each schematic can have its own symbol libraries.
Therefore copying between schematics can give very strange results,
especially if both schematics use a local library named something like
"project_library" but these local libraries are in fact not similar.

Just think about the same multi-part symbol found in each local library,
but in fact differs between libs, for instance by the part unit identifier.

Good luck to the guy who will write the code.
