I struggle finding an efficient workflow for making multiple replicants for new documents. In version 2.X I would press ctrl+enter and then type group/tag names for replicating and tagging items.
This is not feasible in v3 for any tag or group containing commas, but to keep consistency and retain naming conventions overall I need to keep using commas in at least group names. If need be, I could handle my tags with a naming convention that exclude the use of commas and even spaces, but not for groups. Now, in v3 a comma typed in this tag section invoked by ctrl+enter will use commas as separator and create two or more tags instead of accepting what was typed as being an existing group name.
My present workaround is to right-click and use Replicate To which is challenging and cumbersome. I generally wish to only use my keyboard and to have a visual confirmation of what I do (I work fast, with up to hundreds of minute details per hour that I need to replicate correctly).
From the indefatigable support I have learned that this is related to Apple’s handling of tags and difficult to solve. So I would like to suggest a functionality that would be ideal for me under the circumstances:
- A similar popup window to the one that exists for “Move to” for “Replicate to” and similar functionality
- Once replicated, the item and the window the user stood in should remain in front
- Preferably, focus should remain in the popup with the possibility to perform multiple “replicate to” operations without leaving
Any thoughts on this, or does anyone have a “keyboard only”, efficient way of replicating items in v3?
