Assuming without proof that this is a duplicate of bug #21656.

Indeed; I was playing with it with a view to documenting it.
I started at mbook's design notes at http://www.freeciv.org/wiki/Editor -- they're not 100% reflected in the final implementation, but are a good start. (I can't actually remember how to paste now, nor whether I found it here or by reading the source.)

I took me a while to even find copy/paste tool, so you'd be correct to assume that I've never used it (-> not tested any of my patches with it). Maybe I'm stupid, but how do you paste? Nothing happens when I click on the map with the tool in "paste" mode and some tiles in the buffer. (HEAD of both TRUNK and S2_4)

I've seen this when playing with block operations in the editor too.

That's likely tile label that has not been properly copied/pasted.
