Show a dialog box or error message to prevent users copying blank nodes

This is really hard to fix in the current GUI. A fair bit of redesign work would be required. It isn't worth doing that work for such a minor issue. Very few users drag and drop between APSIM User Interfaces. Even if I fixed this, I should probably also have to do copy and paste which has the same issue.

If dragging a node that is a linked node, or has children that are linked
If dragged from 1 window of Apsim to another Apsim, the linked node cannot find it's source and will fail when selected.

Slightly related to task 1216.
Possible solution - link back to a file - but allow paste of linked data
similar to Excel's Paste Special->Values.
