Duplicate as a separate Button

Recommended Posts

Actually there isn't a way to duplicate layers – or did I miss something?

I don't think that a duplicate button should be located next to the help (and undo/redo) button. Though it should be added in the layers panel and maybe as option if you tap and hold on a layer.

Hi AK21,
Welcome to Affinity Forums :)
With the layer selected, tap the ellipsis icon on the top left of the interface and select Duplicate.

Hi MEB,

too long, and this is not a joke.

Ahh, thanks! Never expected it to be there.

Yes. you're right. Power duplicate requires tapping 2x the option menu. This is ok but the duplicate button would be great if it was faster available, i.e. on the toolbar or studio. it is very practical, sometimes the gestures do not work precisely and quickly.

It does work with rotated objects (make sure the Move Tool is active/selected). Power Duplicate only works from the Edit menu (ellipsis icon).

It would be really helpful if we can use desktop keyboard shortcuts using a Bluetooth keyboard. Do you know if there are any plans for this in a future update ?

It could do with a duplicate pop up asking how many duplicates and properties between each but that is more a designer function than specific to ipad

I found it tricky to find the duplicate by gesture and then I think renaming the other menu based duplicate to power duplicate would help
