Using "Staging versions" you can get a compare between basline and a staging version. This we do often.
Our developers complains about not being able to take changes from baseline to staging version by a click. The copy facility is disabled.
This is a bit strange because the staging version is from a package and by then editable.
Off course you can't copy from staging to baseline.

This facility can be implemented in different ways.
If you do a "staging versions" it shold only work when comparing baseling with staging - not backup version.
You coul also have a "Compare with baseline" as a right-click for a component in a package.

Reason for this is we often works on a program and then an error in production or a new "must implement now" feature has to take priority over the work in a package.
But when this new version are baselined you will have to also implement the changes in the original package. So it woud be very nice if you just could copy the affected lines using the compare editor.
