As a BC Estimator user I would like to be able to show or label material differently, when it comes to spacing. Even thou it is the same material.

"Copy and Shift"

Add a right-click option that will "Copy and Shift." It would work like the Shift, but it would copy the selected item and offset (similar to offset in CAD programs). It would save several clicks of the copy and shift-paste.
