Wishlist: Reference View-Only Dynamo window to copy from

I often want to review scripts I’ve previously created and/or copy groups of nodes from them. To do so, I have to save and close my current workspace, open the one I want to reference or copy from, review or copy what I need, close it and reopen my previous workspace and paste.

I tried opening Dynamo in another instance of Revit but could not paste anything copied from it.

I would like to be able to either copy/paste between two Revit/Dynamo instances, or to open a second Dynamo window in a view-only state and be able to copy from it and paste into my active window.

Hopefully future versions can add this functionality.

Hello @rgesner,

I suggest you submit an [Improvement] request on the Github forums.

Similar to one of mine here: https://github.com/DynamoDS/Dynamo/issues/8408

Whenever I need to copy/paste stuff from one graph to another I just turn the source graph into a temporary custom node.
