Drag them with the right mouse button pressed, when you release the button, you'll get a popup menue with the options to move the object or copying it to the new location.

is this the standard behaviour on linux? i remember i can drag files or objects in kde also with ctrl and it is copied then. i like that better.
but if it isnt linux compliant then leave it as it is

There isn't really any "standard" behaviour. However, Mac OS has used modifier-drag for a long time (eg option-drag to copy), and MS picked it up with win32 in the form of control-drag to copy, etc. It's always left-button drag. Most modern GUI file managers for linux support modifier drags too.

I think right button drag is confusing and counter intuitive, myself. It should be possible, once the item drag handling is redone as part of the scribusview refactor, to support control-drag as copy-drag. It'd also be worth looking at shift-drag for locking item movement along 45 degree lines.
