In Potlatch 2 I can copy the tags from the previously touched node by clicking R. How can I do this with iD?

In case you want to create a new object anyway, see the other question can-i-duplicate-a-point-with-all-his-tags-and-infosfor how to duplicate objects.

No I don't want a new object because it will delete the history of the existing node. For example I want to complete existing housenumbers with street, postcode, city, suburb. It is easier to copy all information and correct only the housenumber than add all the other tags.

I know it doesn't answer to your question, but just for info in JOSM you can use Ctrl+C and Ctrl+Shift+V

... or for users of the utilsplugin2 Shift+R if you selected the source object before your current selection (like in Potlatch 2)

Currently iD doesn't allow to copy the tags from one object to another. There is a corresponding issue on GitHub open for over three years now.
