Duplicating Objects

The Duplicate command allows you to make a single copy of an object without using the clipboard. The copy will be offset from the original by a pre-determined amount set in the Drawing panel in Preferences.

To duplicate an object: Select the object(s) to copy and choose Duplicate from the Object menu.

To customize the duplicate offsets: Choose Preferences from the File menu to display the Preferences dialog box. Click on the Drawing panel. Enter new duplicate offsets. Click Save to make your changes permanent or click Use to change them temporarily. Making copies at precise offsets may also be performed with the Transform dialog box.

To drag duplicate an object: Select the object(s) to copy and begin click dragging them. Before releasing the mouse button, press and holding down Option (Alt). The mouse pointer will change to a paste shape.
