Quick way to duplicate a layer

Maybe it's just me, but I don't find it particularly difficult or time-consuming to undo the move, copy the object at its original position, redo the move and then paste the copied object.



I agree, it's not the end of the world. Just a minor nuisance, especially when I want to quickly duplicate grouped objects.


When click-dragging on an unselected group of objects while pressing CMD, AffinityDesigner will only duplicate the selected sub-object of that group (and leave it grouped within its parent), instead of moving and copying the whole group.  So I need to make sure I select the group first, and then duplicate it. Just a few seconds lost, but I just really liked how this worked in Illustrator.
