Functionality to change the standard drag option from Libraries to "place copy"
I would like to receive an option to change the default drag and drop functionality to "Place copy" instead of "Place linked". This will save a lot of time and hassle.
The intended solution is to drag it with the Alt/Opt held.
This is not a thing one can discover easily, since Ai does not change the cursor when you drag and press the modifier, does not hint it when hover over a library item... a sloppy job.
And sure, while Alt/Opt actually feels like a suitable behavior, some would like to modify it and swap the deafult behavior. But alas, Libraries are made by aliens who seems to know nothing about how Ai works :/
Yep. That would be much better.
Yes. It would also save time and hassle if;
- when dragging from the library panel to the art board, the item(s) would appear instantly upon releasing the mouse (as in v.2017) rather then requiring an extra click.
- the item from the library didn't have an extra unneeded group around it (as in v.2017).
