Canvas - Extract selected cards or groups to a new canvas

Use case or problem

When a canvas grows beyond a specific size, it makes sense to convert groups or a selection of cards into a new canvas and link this new canvas to its parent.

Proposed solution

When we select cards or groups, the right-click context menu will show a new option called **Convert to new canvas** or **Extract to new canvas**. Upon selecting that option, all the selected cards and groups will be moved to a new canvas, and the selection will be replaced with a link to this newly created canvas.

Current workaround (optional)

AFAIK, we currently have to manually create a new canvas, move the required groups/cards to this new canvas (cut-paste) and manually create a link to this new canvas in the initial/parent canvas.
