duplicate with option drag; mac & VW9.5

Recommended Posts

I'm having trouble with Option Drag Duplicate. It often doesn't work in VW9.5. Sometimes it duplicates the object sometimes not. It never works to option drag and then push shift to constrain the duplicated item. (It worked in VW8.5.2) Is this a bug or are there new rules?

The option key must be down when you release the mouse. This is how the Finder and other applications work. When the option key is down you should see a + sign on the cursor confirming the copy, and if you let go of the option key it will disappear.

I can use option-shift to constrain the duplicate without trouble. You have to hold down both keys at the same time.
