Copy & Paste

How to clone shapes using ui.Clipboard? How to allow the user to copy text or image and paste it into a diagram as a shape? That's what this demo is all about.
Demo instructions
Clone the shapes that are currently available in the diagram. Alternatively, you can copy any image or text (for example, from Google search) and paste it onto the canvas using the good old CTRL+V/Command+V shortcut.
