How do I copy-drag?

It seems that if I drag something in the Editor page of 2 beta 8 there’s no way to copy it as it drags. Usually on a mac you’d just hold down the option/alt key and it would copy it.

Does anyone know something I don’t regarding this?

Not having this feature would be a big, big drag (no pun intended).

ctrl-drag will do the trick.

Doh! Of course. Thanks Sampo. The fact you have to hold down ctrl before moving the part is what was throwing me, instead of being able to do it mid-drag.

What Ardour really needs is a way to change those kind of basic commands to the Mac standards.
