Dragging and Dropping Within a LibreOffice Document

There are many options for moving or copying objects using drag-and-drop. Text sections, drawing objects, graphics, form controls, hyperlinks, cell ranges, and many more can be moved or copied with the mouse.

Note that the mouse pointer displays a plus sign when copying and an arrow when creating a link or hyperlink.
