New Quick Directional Duplicate Hotkey:

ALT (option)  +   ← → ↑ ↓ (arrow keys)

@Max Harper - Agreed! Thanks for bringing this to my attention yesterday.

@Pauline Parshakova - Tagging you in as it looks like you were the last person to update the Shortcuts and Hotkeys Help Center article. Is this shortcut new?

Thanks for tagging me, @Robert Johnson!

This shortcut has been released for a while already. Indeed, it is not mentioned in the article you shared yet. Let me pitch this to our Help Center team so that we add it there too. Thank you for helping us be consistent :) 

By the way, we highlight this shortcut in this article - Work smarter, not harder:

Let me know if there’s anything else I can do for you. Happy to help!

Cool video @Max Harper - Almost looks like you could create a Pac-Man game with the directional duplication :joy: !

This is a small, but useful feature - all these little accelerators add up to more efficient use of the platform!


UPD: thanks to @Vlada the article Shortcuts and Hotkeys has been already updated! Vlada, you are quick as a wink, thank you!
