Affinity Designer Cloning Hot Key Doesn't Work as Well Anymore?


Recommended Posts

With the latest Mac Update, it seems that I am having a lot of trouble adjusting to the Cloning Hot Key (Command + Drag) that seems so different now. 

I use to do it with ease, but now what happens is that I end up just dragging the original to the location where I want to clone. Anyone else?

There is no "cloning" in Affinity Designer Do you mean Power Duplicate i.e Alt and drag?

Recording tip: Maybe show and example image or short video clip, there is a neat little app called Kap v2 that can make quick gif videos.

I just tried both, it seems that I like to choose Command and Drag because I can also hold down Shift to keep that duplicated object aligned to the original one. Alt and Drag Disables Snapping
