What is the difference between Copy/Paste and Duplicate? Copy places a copy of the selection in the Clipboard, where it is available to be pasted at any time until it is replaced by another copied object. Duplicate makes an immediate copy of the selection without using the Clipboard.
Use Copy/Paste when you want to:
• Make a copy of the selection on another page in the same document.
• Make a copy of the selection in another document.
• Make a copy of the selection in another application.
Use Duplicate when you want to:
• Make a copy on the same page.
• Make a copy without disturbing the current contents of the Clipboard.
You can also command-click (or right-click) on a selected graphic to bring up a Graphic Contextual Menu which includes Duplicate and Copy options.
