Option for drag-and-drop to create cloned item in destination spot, rather than move it there

Would love to have the ability to do this, on some occasions: use drag-and-drop (especially between panes) to clone an item to its destination spot, rather than move it there.

This feature would have so many useful applications for certain kinds of kanban tasks, especially. (Hence the focus on moving between panes … but I could see how it would be useful in the general outline as well).

A keyboard shortcut — say, hold down key while dragging and dropping — is one respectable solution.

Given the connection with certain kinds of kanban/sorting tasks, though: I EXTRA EXTRA like the idea of being able to freeze a whole pane into a ‘clone from’ mode. With this mode on, ANYTHING from that pane which is dragged somewhere into another pane would be cloned to its destination, rather than moved there. The original would be retained in some safe, original spot in the outline; while only a copy would be reassigned to some second more obscure spot in the outline. Lots of great applications for this kind of feature. Again, though, this isn’t the only solution.

However, some option to use drag-and-drop to create a cloned item in destination spot, rather than move it there, would be excellent.

Many thanks!
