      Description

      There are common use case, when we have 1 project building executable and many projects that builds some kind of dynamic libraries for it:

      my_app.exe
      ├── mylib12.dll
      ├── mylib13.dll
      ├── mylib1.dll
      ├── my_plugin1.dll
      ├── my_plugin2.dll
      ├── my_plugin3.dll
      └── ...
      

      After loading one of dll projects, we have to re-configure run configuration to point to my_app.exe, sometimes with custom environment variables etc. The same for another build type (Debug, Release, ...). It's painfull. I wonder if we could have a function to share run configurations between projects, just like we share Kits to build them? Or at least kind of "copy/paste" function that works between projects.

      Currently "Clone" button works only throught the same project, not between them.
