  1. Hi, I am a new user. Opening the software almost for first time. Is there anyway to duplicate my art board by dragging it next to it ? If possible I would like to also have the content of my artboard with this new duplicate. I am coming from AI and of course lot to learn, but so far I am really liking it. Thanks a lot
  2. I reported this bug in 2016, and tony said the solution: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/31290-ctrlclick-duplicating-objects/ I agreed with the solution. Now that one year has passed, Affinity Designer has updated many versions, and many bugs have been fixed. But unfortunately, this duplication keeps occuring. Here are my experiences about this problem: Normally ctrl+click is fine and does not produce duplication. Buy when The compute runs slowly, the AD file is complicated, the ctrl+click duplication is easy to occur. I noticed that sometimes just clicking on an object in AD caused a slight offset. So the real bug is that in some cases, the mouse will offset slightly when clicking. It's more likely to happen when the computer is slow.
  3. Hey, I was trying to get familiar with symbols and came across following behaviour. If I have an artboard with one or more symbols and duplicate this artboard with ctrl+j, then all symbols are detached in the duplicated version. If I copy the artboard with ctrl+c and paste it with ctrl+v, the symbols stay so this is propably not the intended behaviour for duplicating. This is kinda frustrating, working with symbols and duplicating artboards shouldn't be exclusive to each other. I can recreate this all the time and also with completely new and empty files just for testing.
  4. Once again I am afraid I am going to make request that comes straight from your competitor. But once again it's simple and it works. A very simple shortcut I use all the time in the Layers Palette of PS is to duplicate and simultaneously locate a layer by holding down the Alt key while dragging it to where you want it. This works in PS for all types of layer. It’s a tiny thing but it really makes life quick and simple. I would love to see this in AP. It is entirely consistent with Affinity which already uses the Alt key for layer duplication by dragging in the image.
  5. Hello I've got two issues with duplicating objects. These aren't exactly bugs as it looks like they are so by design, but they fool me every time so I'm wondering what the rationale behind them is. 1. I first have to select an object before duplicating it by holding the alt-key while dragging the object. This is not the case when I just want to move the object, because this can be done without selecting it first. Is there a good reason for this behavior? 2. When duplicating an object and moving it immediately (for example when you drag the object with the alt-key pressed) Affinity registers two actions behind the screens: first it duplicates, then it moves the new object. This is confusing when undoing the duplication: it requires two undo's while it looks like you've only did one action. This results in having unwanted duplications right on top of the original. Thanks! Bauke
