           Summary: pasting operation pastes directly over copied object
           Product: Kepler
           Version: 1.0.0alpha3
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: major
          Priority: P2
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: berkley at nceas.ucsb.edu
        ReportedBy: ldowney at lternet.edu

When an object (e.g., actor) is copied and then pasted, it is placed directly 
over the original copied object which often confuses the user as to whether 
the paste operation was successful and users will sometimes paste a couple of 
more times before realizing that the pasted objects are being pasted on top of 
each other (even though there is small number changed in the title).

The paste operation should result in the pasted object being placed offset to 
the originally copied object so that it is immediately clear that the copy and 
paste operation was successful.
