           Summary: Copy/Paste of composite actors
           Product: Kepler
           Version: 1.0.0beta3
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: interface
        AssignedTo: brooke at nceas.ucsb.edu

There is a composite actor A, in which a parameter P is referred to.
A Copy/Paste into another workflow (or some other subparts in the same
workflow) where parameter P does not exists (we get an error message) puts
all elements of the composite into the same 0 coordinate. 
This is very annoying and makes reuse of workflows/actors much harder than it
should be. 

I am used to drag the elements back into their place, but I am impatient to do
that above 20 elements. Also I used to create parameters (if I am aware of
them) before copying, but this is also cumbersome.
Just think about text-code programmming and copy-paste of complete loops, and
then renaming the variables according to the context.
