This, unfortunately, is a inherent limitation that can't be solved. I know it's frustrating, and one of the main things we want to tackle for the next major iteration is the visual scripting's architecture, so that it allows things like copy & paste more easily.

The reason behind why this doesn't work is because each Action is a hidden component. When copying the Actions component, you're copying the container, not the contents.
