The PCB I'm laying out has two sections that are identical. After laying out one section and tweaking it to my satisfaction, how do I copy this to another part of the board and populate it with the correct components? I've managed to copy and paste all the traces and vias to the new location, but I can't figure out how to get the new components to attach to the traces. I have attached a picture of what I'm talking about...

Move the component into position, right-click on it (not its pads) and select Connect Traces in the pop-up menu.

Thank you. I knew there had to be a simple way; just didn't see it.
