Copy-paste and undo functionality needed in new flow builder

Process Automation

In the sandboxes the new flow builder was released, and while it looks very nice, it lacks two major functions I've used constantly since day one: copy-pasting elements, and the undo button. I'm trying to work on a flow and I accidentally deleted the wrong element, but when I went to undo it, there is no undo function. Likewise, I tried to copy an update element to add to a decision that was identical to another update minus one field update but that functionality also does not exist currently. Both of these are extremely important to me and save me at least dozens in not hundreds of man-hours building automation for our processes. Preferably if we could get these ASAP and not wait another release that would be amazing!
Another, more minor annoyance is the lack of being able to select multiple elements at one time to move or copy-paste. That isn't as vital as the aforementioned functions, but it would be very nice to have.

    Flow Builder PM here - I assure you, copy/paste and undo/redo are at the top of our list, along with the rich text editor, find in canvas, and marquee selection! We just couldn't get them in for the first release, and decided it was better to get Flow Builder out there with all the good it *does* have, than not put it out at all.

    Also: while you're waiting for marquee selection (click and drag to select multiple elements) you can select multiple elements by holding down the Shift key before you click on the element you want to add to the selection.
