Wanted: GUI Editor option to disable Shift-Click item cloning

Libicher, Ivan 5 years ago in GUI Editor updated by Theo Derks - NL (distributor) 4 years ago 5
Shift-Click on an item in GUI editor creates a clone of that item.
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.

Hello everyone,


If we will not add this option, BUT item will be not cloned, if you don't move an item?


For example:
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?

Hi Ivan,
Thanks for your request; we already asked for this request too for 2 years ago…

There is no Windows-based program where Shift-Click is used to clone an object….

Thanks

Theo

For me:
Take the idea from Ivan, and make an option to disable Shift-Click.


Better is to make Shift-Click for multie-selection, like all other windows-based programs...


Thanks
