Currently it is not possible to copy a single content element to the clipboard, when using the page module with backend layouts. A user must go to the list module, find the right CE and cut / copy it and paste it into the target page.

It would be much more convinient to be able to copy and paste the element in the page module.

I don't think that the icons should be added.

Grid Elements already provides drag+drop by default, so a better approach might be to behave like the page tree: push Crtl/Shift when dropping the element.

A patch posted for review solves this problem:

Altough it does this not via drag&drop.
But the infrastructure for doing copy&paste with additional field changes (colPost, sys_language_uid, etc.) is created.

Two options:
1. Implement clipBoard handling via ExtDirect (#32152) AND implement drag&drop for grid elements (this issuse) --> target state
2. Apply patch mentioned above for 6.2 LTS until 1. properly works
