An App::Part container is a universal object which can hold any kind of DocumentObject like meshs or Paths or even pictures. I can't work with Part tools (Booleans, Compound etc.) which work with Part::Features only and hence result in a undefined behavior. The App::Part object should not work with those tools. Current behavior is correct.

To point 3: make a simple copy. I agree that the simple copy tool should handle App::Part objects, but this must involve creating a simple copy of all child DocumentObjects, as a DocumentObject is allowed to be only in a single local coordinate system (GeoFeatureGrouip, Which App::Part is).

the option to make a simple copy of App::Part objects is becoming requested ...

Is this 'General' or should I move it to 'Part' category?

@Kunda1
an other user case where a single copy of App::Part and Body would be useful

I suspect that the more people will use FC0.17 to elaborate STEP files, the more this issue will raise its relevance.

Just FYI, Draft Clone works on Part containers, it may be suitable as a workaround. EDIT: while it works on a simple Part container, it will not work on a Part container that contains other containers.

In Steps to reproduce, step 2 is no longer required. The Part container is now global and available in all workbenches within the Structure toolbar.

This is a function also useful for STL export and also for FEM meshing.
