Duplicate Documents

Recommended Posts

I just noticed this thread is over a year old… as of the latest beta the duplicate document feature has not been addressed yet.

 

Can we look forward for this to be implemented in the near future? Lacking some sort of duplicate command seriously hampers our workflow.

 

Thanks!

Actually you can duplicate an image in AP, although it's not quite as efficient as in Photoshop.  I use PS almost exclusively, but also checking AP in case there might someday be an issue with PS CS6.  I have encountered a number of questionable situations in AP, but it definitely does have potential.  In PS I usually have a number of images open at any one time, so I turn of the "Application Frame" since I do not like working with tabs.  Therefore I am also working in AP in "Separated Mode", although I am not fond of the floating, tab like window.  However, I do digress.  The answer to your question is as follows: open an image file - copy(alt/opion + c) - go to FIle>Open From Clipboard.  This will open a duplicate/copy of your image file.  Hope this helps.

The copy has only 96 dpi, but the original 300 dpi. Why?

Maybe it would be better to leave the decision to the user. Let Affinity allow the user to chose where (s)he wants to copy/duplicate the file - maybe on another hard disk, not on different partition on the same HD.

Woops ;^(   I apologize for not checking the resolution of the "copy", and I have no idea why that is happening.  Obviously there is an answer, but not one I can think of at the moment.  I just did the same procedure again and saved the copy to the desktop.  When I opened the desktop file in PS it was 76ppi.  'Tis a conundrum.
