Copy link

commented Aug 13, 2019


Some software uses the Alt+Drag gesture to make a copy of the selected items along with moving them to the new place. XOD IDE can benefit from the same mechanics too, adding a new way to quickly replicate similar clusters.

User story

  • I select a few nodes
  • I hold down the Alt key (Option on Mac)
  • I drag the selection
  • The original selection stays in place
  • A new copy of all the nodes selected with links between them moves casting the blue shadows
  • I drop the selection
  • The new copy is finally created at the point of the drop

Acceptance criteria

  • The basic scenario works as described
  • The nodes selected include links between them exactly like Copy/Paste do
  • The comments are clonable too
  • The Alt key behavior is added to the Shortcuts article (
