Duplicate Object Command

Duplicates the selected object(s) once with a small offset.

duplicate [DEFAULTOFFSET | NOOFFSET | OFFSET offsetx offsety] [IDLIST &objectidlist/.0.1.2] [DOCUMENT name | WINDOW name | OBJECTID number]

DEFAULTOFFSET/b Use the default duplicate offsets.

NOOFFSET/b Duplicate in the exact same location as the originals.

OFFSET/d Overrides the default duplicate offsets.

IDLIST/s Name of stem variable to return list of new object handles. Prior to 5.0.2.11, IDLIST also included .COUNT.

DOCUMENT/s The document name. Default=current.

WINDOW/s The window name. Default=current.

OBJECTID/i The number of the object to manipulate.

Results:

Returns a list of all new object handles. Removed .COUNT from list in 5.0.2.11 so that they can be returned as a list instead of a dict in python. The return result still contains the count. However, any older Arexx script that relies on this stem variable will need to be updated.

Notes:

Examples:
ARexx:

duplicate offset 1.125 -2.5 duplicate document 'project.doc'
