Move Tool Reset button

Question

When using the move tool to create duplicates is great but often I forget that I have set the copy to on and increased the number of duplicates.  It would be nice if there was one button to reset it to 1 and turn of the duplicate option.  image.thumb.png.70af9e16429219dd6cf3fe6ce7323319.png

The number of Duplicates should never have any influence

as long as copy (retain) option IS activated.

You can also set the number of duplicates to 0. Then it is only one button to turn of duplicates. 
 

Also if you press you hotkey for move by points twice fast. Then you get a pop up where you can fill in the number of duplicates. I often do this by default when using this tool.

I would prefer to have separate buttons for Move and Copy.

 

Me too.

 

For me that Move/Copy by Points combo is the most embarrassing Tool in VW.

I switch so often between Move or Copy Mode and each time I am forced to

reset the number to 1 for moving.

Also there are lots of other solutions for the amount of copies outside of VW.

E.g. in Bricscad's Copy, I input my distance once and just drag the cursor further

to increase my number of copies in a graphical way, before I finally finish

with a click.

I always have it set to copy and I never change it. I just set the number of copy’s to 0 if I want to just move.
 

Double tap your hotkey. Set number and click away.
