Copy Object

There are three ways to copy an object.

Copy Using the Context Menu

  1. Select the object by double-clicking it.

  2. Right-click the object.

  3. Select the Copy tool in the Context Menu.

  4. Right-click anywhere else in the scene and choose the Paste button.

Note: This also works with CTRL + C or V. Use Paste In Place (CTRL+Shift+V) to paste an object exactly where it was copied from.

Copy Using the CTRL Key

  1. Select the object by clicking it (double-click to select a whole body or everything attached).

  2. Press and hold the CTRL key and start dragging the object, or start moving the object and then tap CTRL

  3. Instead of moving the object, you'll now be moving a copy of it.

  4. Note that Ctrl-copy does not currently work when Touch Mode is enabled.

    1. In Touch Mode, you'll need to use the copy/paste tools in the Context Menu (press and hold) or use Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V, then place the object down, and reposition it as needed.

  2. Right-click the object and select the Array tool

  3. Select the number of copies you want to make
