It would be great to have the possibility to copy and paste a layer in the legend.
1.) right mouse click on the layer in the legend
2.) click sth like copy layer
3.) right mouse click somewhere in the legend
4.) click sth like paste layer
I know this is already possible with creating a new shapefile and copying all the features of the existing shapefile and insert them in the new shapefile.
But I think the described way would be much more easy and attractive for many users.

What is the purpose of this functionality - to actually create a duplicate Shapefile, or to duplicate the layer on the layer's list?

I thought of duplicating the layer on the layer's list.
But maybe creating a duplicate shapefile in this way is also an interesting feature?

Easily duplicating a layer entry in the layer list could be handy if you wanted to use the same dataset but apply different queries.
Could work like drag and drop with Ctrl key down to copy, or so.

Implemented in c11df1aa79 as 'Duplicate layer(s)' action. Does not include the copy/paste feature, or drag/drop duplicate support, requested here.
