"Option Command D" keystroke not working.

rm
Advocate
Hi everyone -

I have been away from this forum for years. I just upgraded to AC21 on Mac OSX. I am setting up my shortcuts and I have noticed AC21 will not respond to the shortcut "OPTION COMMAND D". It will not allow me to drag a copy by using the keystrokes. However, if I "right-click" over a line or object, I then can drag a copy.

I have looked in my user preferences and I noticed this IS the keystroke for drag a copy from Graphisoft out of the box. I have even tried to assign the keystroke manually and AC will not let me do it.

Interestingly "OPTION COMMAND E", rotate a copy, "OPTION COMMAND M", mirror a copy both work as intended.

Anyone else on a Mac experiencing this problem? Is this a known bug?

Thanks in advance for any insight/help offered.

Hi Robert,

Welcome back - long time!

System keyboard shortcuts take preference. You may have noticed your dock appearing and disappearing while pressing opt-cmd-D?

Go to System Preferences > Keyboard and uncheck the box for the system shortcut. It will now respond as desired within ARCHICAD.

Cheers,
Karl
