option+drag produces multiple history items

Recommended Posts

When duplicating and moving an object in Affinity Designer with option+drag, 3 history items are created:

  • Transform
  • Duplicate
  • Transform


Intuitively, I expect only one, and when "undoing" with command+z, the "Duplicate" action doesn't make a visible change, leading me to frequently end up with unintended duplicates all over the place. I think that merging these into a single history item would be a huge usability improvement.

Hi mike.marcacci


as alt+dragging  is both a duplicate and transform action we intentionally have multiple entries for it. Saying that there is a good argument to only have one also. I;m moving this to our feature requests section to be considered
