Duplicate, Lock, Copy, Paste, & Arrange
Inspector Tool (formerly Arrange Tool)
We are replacing the Arrange Tool with a new Inspector Tool. Don't worry, all of the arrange options are still available. Many of our users had been asking for the option to duplicate objects on the stage or to lock them. We have made this possible! Select the inspector tool and then choose an object on the stage. A moving dotted outline will appear around the selected object (or group of objects) and a menu will pop up with two columns of choices.
The left menu choices (Bring to Front, Bring Forward, Send Backward, Send to Back) are the same ones that have always been in the arrange tool. Choose an option to change the position of the selected object(s).
The duplicate button will create a clone of the selected object(s) and place it on the stage next to the original object.
Copy & Paste
Press the Copy button to put a copy of the selected object(s) in your temporary clipboard. Select the inspector and click anywhere on the stage or on an object to reveal the paste option. The object(s) can be added to the existing slide or to a new slide at any time.
Locking an object with hold the object(s) in position until they are unlocked (also using the inspector tool). Locking objects prevents them from accidentally being moved around.
A Potentially Helpful Combination..
When you add an image or document to the stage and lock it AND switch the preference for 'Drawings become objects' to off, you can use the draw tool and eraser to freely write and erase over the locked document and use the Zoom tool to navigate around. This might be a helpful alternative for some users!
