💡Feature Idea: Temporarily unlock items e.g. for copying/dragging

1. What you want to be able to do in MURAL: I have got things in my mural e.g. working areas for "Crazy 8" - a separate area per participant. Let's say 8 areas in total. I've super-locked them all. Now I prepare the workshop and I have to extend those working areas to 10 areas for 10 participants. I would like to be able to easily duplicate and move those areas although they're locked. Something like a magic-facilitator-only-super-lock-deactivator which utilizes my special skills (i.e. pressing keys and moving the mouse) to temporarily unlock objects/areas for copying and moving around. Let's say I could press CTRL+SHIFT+LEFT MOUSEBUTTON for selection, select the areas, choose duplicate from the context menu and then hit another key ("ALT"?) and move the original areas around. As soon as I unpress the keys, everything will be superlocked again.

2. The problem you are trying to solve: Time consuming selection, unlocking, copying and moving around, locking again things ;-)

3. Why this helps everyone (or many people): This might be helpful for facilitators who have to adapt (their) templates for additional participants or who need to make changes after super-locking everything...

    I would like to up this again in a variation: It would be great if things could be easily unlocked temporarily by pressing and holding e.g. a key on the keyboard when I as a facilitator / member would like to resize, move or copy objects.
