Rocview distinguishes if the ID is a route ID or a block/sensor ID.

:!: ID's can be evaluated only, if the clipboard only contains a single ID or a comma separated list of ID's
Note: If the clipboard is empty the route IDs are cleared on this action. (A question popup will ask the first time if this action is wanted.)
Note: Rocview writes an empty string in the clipboard at startup.

A single Object

With the context menu of a symbol it can be copied to the clipboard and be pasted on an empty spot in the track plan.
After paste a new ID will be asked if needed.

The copied object can also be pasted in an editor to view or modify the definition in XML.
If the modification should have effect on the next paste action the complete XML must be selected and copied to the clipboard.
