Retired with too much time on my hands… I wondered why Sketchup did not have a dedicated COPY command… so of course I thought as a good forum user I would do a post search first
You know! Just like the MOVE command… considering it is one of the most frequent actions we users make…
Well god bless
@Simoncbevans as he had the same thought 8 years ago I feel for you Simon !!!
I love using SU but there is one thing above all else that irritates me and that is the lack of a dedicated copy command. I know I will be told that it is not so hard to hit the Alt key when using the move command. It wouldn’t be if the command was only needed occasionally, but for me it is a command I use constantly. It wouldn’t be so bad if you could create a single key shortcut but you can’t. It’s not just the fact that you have to hit the Alt key but you also have to do it repeatedly for…
PS, please feel free to add any posts you think deserve the title of “Forums Funniest Posts”
I though that CTR-c then CTR-v (on PC) or Cmd-c then Cmd-V (on Mac) would allow a copy, like nearly all other programs.
Now, 8 years later, we have the stamp modifier for the Move Tool, which supplies exactly the functionality
@simoncbevans was then trying to describe. Progress. Glacial
Still on SU2021 perpetual
Same here. I mostly use SU21 perpetual.
Did you try to hit the “Ctrl” key twice before moving an object to apply the stamp?
No, but well Simon and I were both lamenting the need to type two keys to execute a copy… considering that action is so common and dedicating one key would seem a good idea…
I can execute what you are doing but I still need two keystriokes to first initiate it, then one keystroke to continue…
If I recall correctly they initially (2021.0) proposed the persistent stamp as default copy behavior, but then (2021.1 maybe) they sorted this in this way.
I agree it’s a pretty common operation, but still the single copy (or array by input number) is even more common, at least for me.
So, all in all, I personally appreciated this double tap modifier more…
