I have been able to copy a single thought, including its parents, children, & jumps and paste it into a new Brain.  However, I don't seem able to copy multiple thoughts, including all of their parents, children, & jumps, and then paste the result into a new brain.  Is this possible?

First, try to select the thoughts, you want to copy. Then in the selection bar on the left, right-click and select 'Crawl Brain and Modify Selection'. Choose your options. Then again in the selection bar on the left, right-click and select 'Copy Selected Thoughts'.

This stretegy works if I select only one child of a thought group and want to include its children, parents and jumps,  However, I cannot select several children of a thought and copy all of the children, parents, and jumps of those thoughts, and then paste the entire group of thoughts with all of their connected thoughts into a new Brain.

Well, it works with my brains. Why can't you select several children of a thought?

But: "Crawl Brain and Modify Selection" works relatively to the active thought - it does not work on thoughts inside the selection box.

So if you want to copy several thoughts (from anywhere in the brain) including children etc. then you should  "Crawl Brain and Modify Selection" several times.

After much experimentation, I discovered the limits of copying multiple thoughts, as well as crawling for children, parents, and jumps of those multiple thoughts.  As Martin stated,  the copying and crawling needs to be done several times.  Thank you all for the help.

Where's the problem? You don't need 'copying and crawling several times'.

1. Select all your disparate (several) thoughts.
2. Create a dummy thought (i.e. 'ToCopy').
3. Make the selected thoughts children of this dummy thought.
4. Add the dummy thought to the selection.
5. Expand the selected dummy by 'Crawl...'.
6. Copy the expanded selection into another brain.
7. In the other brain, delete the dummy thought.

That's it.

...yes, that's it!

I will keep 'ToCopy' as a pinned orphan in the brain.

This 'to copy' strategy works nicely.  The only slight wrinkle I have is that the child thoughts I wish to copy and paste to a new Brain, are nested a few levels deep in a hierarchy, and have their own groups of extra parent and jump thoughts.  When I select the appropriate level of crawl steps to include the extra parent thoughts of those child thoughts, I also get many of the parent thoughts from the general hierarchy.  However, I can forget or delete unwanted parent thoughts after pasting the copied group.   Is there is a better solution?
