Summary0003271: Copy/paste view directly to clipboard

The current workflow for making figures with Slicer is suboptimal. It takes 2-3 clicks to capture and name a screenshot, and then a number of other steps to save the screenshot - change directories, change name, etc. Then need to wait 5-10s for the scene to save.

A significant improvement would be allowing direct copy/paste from a 2d/3d frame to the system clip board.

A decent and easier-to-implement option would be simply adding a button to the Annotation module to allow copying screenshot items to the clipboard.

Additional Information

Post-4.3 issue.
