As you continue to work with transformations, there may come a time when…you need to repeat a certain transformation or create multiple copies of a…transformed object.…In this movie, I'll show you how to work with multiple copies and also how to…repeat transformations using both a keyboard shortcut and an effect.…First of all, let's see how to perform basic repeatable transformations.…I am going to select this piece of artwork on my artboard right here by clicking…and dragging a selection around it.…Once I have it selected, I can come over the top of it, hold down the Option key…on Mac, the Alt key on PC, and once I see the double cursors appear, I can…click and drag it to the right.…
Once I have it where I want it, I'll release the mouse and release my Option or…Alt key and I've created a duplicate copy just like you see there.…If I hold down the keyboard shortcut, Ctrl+D or Command+D on the Mac, it…automatically creates a duplicate of that object with the same transformation…that I just applied.…
