short answer: NO.
i just select all the objects that are covered by the canvas _but_ the
canvas itself and make "Ctrl-X Ctrl-Z" to put them on top of the canvas
(the inner state of the the so moved copy-n-pasted objects will be cleared!)
the first versions of canvas had this already built in (to be precise:
it was really "Ctrl-A Ctrl-X Ctrl-V" which was naughtier as you would
eventually loosing connections outside of the patch too) but this is
gone (as it pretended to be a solution while it was a dirty hack)

so Ctrl-Z will work
