when tiling in Godot, how can you select some tiles and then copypaste them in a different location. I would very much like to use this to speed up my level design processing.
Thanks,

If you're on a Windows machine, try selecting the objects you're trying to duplicate then press CTRL+D. The duplicated objects will be overlaid right on top of the selected items so click + drag them to where you want them to go.

A section explains it in the tutorials: https://docs.godotengine.org/en/stable/tutorials/2d/using_tilemaps.html?#tips-and-tricks

However the doc is a bit outdated.

In Godot 3.2, when the tilemap is selected, there is a "Copy" icon on the right in the menu bar. Click on it, or press M, then drag a rectangle to select an area of tiles you want to copy. Then use Ctrl+C, which will allow you to paste the selected tiles elsewhere. Once you made copies, right-click to deselect.
