I have a suggestion to add to the list of shortcut keys to "duplicate".
When you create a schema often convenient instead of looking for something in the library, it is easier to duplicate it.
Great facilitation would be assigned to a key option to duplicate.

I've been asking for this for years, on top of that - make the duplicated part 'hang onto' the cursor, waiting to be placed.

You can duplicate a component in the schematic by selecting the component you want to duplicate and then use CTRL-C to copy and CTRL-V to paste. DipTrace will update the reference designator on the copied component. However, it doesn't stick to the cursor. That would be convenient. The closest method I know of to get that functionality is after hitting CTRL-C, move the cursor to about where you want the copied part and select "Paste" from the right click context menu.

Farley, That means the feature to add to the list of shortcut keys to "duplicate" is available in diptrace?
