In the Composer, if the user copies and then pastes a group of items (i.e. three labels), the pasted items will all be positioned under the mouse pointer, losing the relative positioning the items had one another.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Create a new composer
2. Add three non-overlapping labels of different size and different background,(the latter part is only to increase visual cue of what's wrong)
3. Select the three labels and copy the selection
4. Click anywhere on the composer sheet and paste the selection
5. At this stage, all of the pasted elements will overlap and their relative positioning lost
Discussed this with Nyall yesterday, assigning to him as per his request.
