--- Comment #1 from Joris Steyn <jorissteyn at gmail.com> ---
Shared- vs deep-copy are both useful features.

If you want a "shared copy" of a widget, that means having two widgets pointing
to the same UML object representation, use copy/paste on the widget. You can
have different styles on the widget, but adding attributes, changing name etc
will affect all widgets on all diagrams that belong to the same UML object.

If you want a "deep copy" of a widget, use the "Duplicate" item in the
right-click context menu.

I'm closing this bug but please file a new bug if there are still ideas on how
we can handle this better.
