Is there a way to clone an element, so that it leaves a copy of itself
from its point of origin when it’s dragged to another sortable list?

Thanks for hints!

I believe this would be taken care of by setting the ghosting
parameter to true in the Sortable.create method call. Check here:

Is that what you're talking about?

This isn't the solution, I think. Ghosting makes a clone, but when the
drag ends, the clone will disappear. I'm searching for a solution for
this problem, too, but havn't an answer yet.

Ah this has been driving me crazy for weeks. I found a forum post
somewhere that in ruby on rails spinoffs that suggested creating a
droppable on the element then creating the sortable on top, but I had
little luck with that method. I'm digging through the code now I'm
bound and determined to make it work. Has anyone seen another
framework that can do this?
