Duplicating elements enables you to select an element or elements and quickly make copies of them.
You can also specify the amount of overlap when you duplicate.
To duplicate elements:
1 Select one or more elements.
2 Do one of the following:
- Click Duplicate on the Edit menu. The selected element is duplicated and appears offset to the original element.
- Press Ctrl + D. The selected element is duplicated and appears offset to the original element.
- Ctrl + click one of the selected elements to duplicate all selected elements. You can keep the mouse button down and drag them to the new position on the canvas.
To set the overlap when you duplicate
1 Duplicate an element or elements. The element is copied overlapping the original.
2 Move the duplicated element to the location relative to the original. For example, move the duplicated element five grid spaces above the original element.
3 Duplicate the element again. The new duplicate is placed in the same offset you specified in the preceding step. For example, five grid spaces above the original element.
