How to copy a layer in illustrator and paste it right below it?
For a person who seldom ever use illustrator is not that fast to find a way to do it.
In relation to microsoft excel, a much popular software, how do you copy a row?
When I started using Excel without knowing anything, I would just right click on the row, and it would give me options of what could do, and one of the options was "copy" the row.
When using Illustrator on how to copy a layer I couldn't find any options around the layer panel to copy it, and right clicking on the layer wouldn't give me the option of copying it either. I had to search YouTube and find out the way of doing it was " click on the layer, shift and drag"... Suuure, it is a similar as if you copy an object, how couldn't I figure it out? ....
I believe the problem with Adobe is that people are expected to learn it, but the software is not intuitive enough for people with zero exposure to explore it and find solutions easily on their own. Rather than having people memorize so many shortcuts the options of what you can do with certain things should be presented on a simple right click of the item.Edgar Lindo supported this idea ·
