This is not suitable for people (like me) used to work in environments such as Windows or Google Docs where Shift-Click means multi-selection.
Because the Shift-Click clones an item without clear visual feedback (the new item overlaps the old one and looks identical), it may happen that you create a number of "cloned ghost items" in your project without noticing it.
I have seen such ghost items in projects created by other people, too.
I will not suggest to change the behaviour of Shift-Click in GUI Editor, because some users are probably OK with it.
But for us who will never get used to it, I suggest to implement a simple checkbox option in the GUI editor:
"Disable Shift-Click cloning". When this is checked, Shift-Click would do nothing.
If we will not add this option, BUT item will be not cloned, if you don't move an item?
Shift + click to item + don't move - nothing happened
Shift + click to item + move item -> you move a new cloned item
Will this solving fix your problem?

It would be nice to have an integration with version control systems like git for the source code.
To my view all of the project components has to be stored in the version control:
- project graphics components and interfaces.
basically everything that is stored in .irpz file has to be under version control.
I see multiple benefits of this feature:
- Allow multiple developers/designers to collaborate on the project
- Reuse components of the project in other projects e.g. branching.
- Support of the existing installations knowing which version of project was deployed
and if there any components/libraries were changed after.
- Use of other tools to modify project components - text editors, graphics editors,
Iridium GUI Editor would act as a compiler and transfer tool, while development can be
Installers want an option to drag & drop 2 or more commands in one time to an item (button).
This will save much time for installers when designing projects.
- Start the GUI Editor
- the first 5 seconds there is a beautifull image
- Then we have to wait 10 seconds without any information: is everything ok now? Is the GUI starting? Or is there something wrong...???
This is NOT clear for installers: please show the Splash-screen continuesly during starting the GUI Editor.

It would be extremely useful and an big time saver if there was an additional option added into the GUI Editor to change the font used by EVERY Page, Popup and Graphical Item in the currently selected open project.
For example, an additional button is added in the toolbar. Click on the button, new font selection dialog box opens. There should be an check box which enables\disables the option of changing the font size at the same time. So when this check box is disabled ONLY the font is changed in the project.
