On Windows It was done with Ctrl held, cant figure out hot do I do it on Mac?
Your can use the keyboard shortcuts copy (cmd+C) then paste (cmd+V) or you can hold down the option (alt) key while dragging selected text to duplicate it.
thanks, thats how I expected it to work, but for some reason it doesnt work (for me?). I can see a green Plus icon appearing, but the original text is being removed instead of being leaved in peace
What application are you working in? I'm not sure if all applications work this way with text editing.
Oh, you are right! Works in Textedit. But I normally work in Evernote, where it doesnt seem to work. Alright, I think I'll write to Evernote support now. Thank you so much!
Click on the menu bar, then examine what is in all the menus. The menus show you exactly what to press on the keyboard.
It works just fine for me in Evernote.
excuse me, guys, I wasn't clear enough, cmd+C and cmd+V work fine, but I need to drag with mice
this doesn't work..
Incidentally, Alt+Drag is a pretty common Mac convention. Not universal, but common. For example, if you alt+drag a file, it will copy, etc.
