Shapes can be copied and include all the underlying data. When copying a shape, it is the active shape that is copied. A copy offset can be specified, which allows for the shape to be moved from the coordinates it is being copied from.
A copy offset: in this case moving the copied shape 10m across and 20m down
Release points which pertain to a process train can easily be copied to another process train of the same design by copying with an offset.
