After defining a set of columns in a table, I can delete them but I can't cut/copy them and paste them into another table.

A good example is a set of address fields. I might need one set in one table and another set (maybe tweaked a bit) in another table (or even in the same table—think about home address and business address). I have not been able to find any way to copy the columns.

I consider this a deficiency in the software and have therefore selected S3 for the Severity instead of S4.

How to repeat:
Create two tables.
Give each table 20 fields. None of the fields in one table should be in the other.
Add another 20 columns to one table.
Try to quickly add these 20 columns to the other table.

The reason for the first 20 fields is to avoid having you just duplicate the entire table.

The reason for using 20 fields is that it emphasizes the amount of work required.

Suggested fix:
Support cut/copy/paste for table columns.
