Duplicating objects

Making a duplicate






Ctrl+D (Windows)

Cmd+D (Mac)

The Duplicate command makes a copy of an object or group of objects and places it on the drawing. Depending on the setting in Vectorworks preferences, the duplicated object or objects will either be offset or placed directly on top of the original.

To duplicate any object:

Select the object to copy.

Select the command.

The program places a copy of the selected object in the drawing according to the settings in the Vectorworks Preferences dialog box.

When objects with an offset are duplicated, the offset is maintained with the duplicate.
