What happens if you:
o Select the row or column.
o Drag it to the new position.
o Hold down the Alt key whilst you drop?

Yes! That works!

I'm glad there is an easy way to do it! Thanks!!!

Unfortunately (for LO) it is not obvious even for advanced users... Which
means that for the average user the conclusion is that LO can't do that...

There are also the following alternatives:
- Hold down Ctrl whilst dropping, to copy a column overwriting any content already in the column you're dropping onto - Hold down Ctrl and Alt whilst dropping, to copy to a new column inserted in between two existing columns

Although not particularly obvious, all these options are documented in the help - from the index, look up "moving" > "cells by drag-and-drop".

Holding Ctrl while dragging to copy is quite common in other applications too. Not so common, but I have seen holding Alt while dragging to move things in other applications where copying in the default (i.e. with no key held down) action. So now you know about them, it might be worth trying Ctrl+drag and Alt+drag in applications other than LibreOffice too ;o)
