Different UI Shortcuts


To duplicate a selected item:

Microsoft Visio: Control + Drag
Balsamiq: Alt + Drag

Totally confusing.


Hi @Avi_Nahir,

Sorry for the confusion with this.

I’ve been looking around and Alt+Drag seems to be more commonly used among tools (e.g. Illustrator or Keynote use the same one).

Also, you can duplicate controls by using CTRL+D (and also CMD+D on a Mac), and if you set the position of the first duplicated control, using CTRL+D again will use the same spacing for the next one. Does that help?

We’re here to help if you need anything else! :slight_smile:
