-PREAMBLE-
I'm still not very happy about affinity's alt-dragging behaviour, where you have to decide BEFORE pressing the mouse, if you want to duplicate. From ID or AI I'm used to drag, and then think of all the modifier-keys to hold...

But what's very annoying is that things don't snap to my guides anymore, while in alt-dragging mode. This has to be a bug, i'm sure!

It's not. If you want it to snap, don't use Alt. Use (probably) Cmd as the modifier to copy it.

(Or release Alt after starting the drag, as @haakoo suggested.)

As far as the Affinity apps are concerned, Ctrl on Windows is Cmd on a Mac. This applies in all cases except for clearing your user data, where it’s Ctrl on both platforms.

So my main error was using alt (as I learned from Creative Suite) Command is the new way to go!

Thank you all!
