Macromedia - Tricks For Duplicating Your Layers In Fireworks (4/MX)


Duplicating a layer in Fireworks is an easy way to re-create content without having to rebuild it. There are three ways to copy a layer. First, you can select the layer and choose Duplicate Layer from the Layers panel's menu to produce the Duplicate Layer dialog box. Here you can designate where Fireworks places the copied layer once it's created and how many copies to make. Another quick way to duplicate a layer is to hold down [Alt] ([option] on the Mac) while dragging a layer, which keeps the original where it is while placing the duplicate wherever you choose. The last way to duplicate a file is to drag it to the New/Duplicate Layer button on the Layers panel, which simply creates the copy and places it below the original.
