How about copy and pasting models inside the editor?

Did you try to select and then multiply the model? Is that not the same thing?

How about copying groups of models inside one file and retaining the copied layout?

I am not sure what you mean by this. If you multiply the group, each group maintains the layout of the group. If you save a project file, all of its properties are kept including layout of models.

    I am not sure what you mean by this. If you multiply the group, each group maintains the layout of the group. If you save a project file, all of its properties are kept including layout of models.

    I think I've posted a bit carelessly about these two things.

     

    Yes, multiply works to copy items, I was not thinking straight. I really wanted to post about the keyboard shortcut, not the function itself. Not sure why I changed the subject there...

     

    So, sure, the "m" key (together with the  "ctrl" or "command" key) is logically selected for the multiply function, but I find it not really ergonomic if I want to use the function in rapid succession.  I would like to suggest changing the combination or adding another shortcut for it positioned near the left hand area.

     

    I am also an idiot for not noticing the group function, thanks for pointing that out.

    Ahhh, gotcha... 🙂 

     

    Edit: Just thought of this...have you tried the right click menu? Everything can be accessed with the mouse.
