I can see that in Draw there's a dialog to  
get an array of copies of selected objects. That 
is fine, but it's a little complicated if you 
only want a single copy. In Powerpoint and other 
office programs I can get a duplicate of the selection 
by simply pressing CTRL-D: easy and fast. Assigning 
a shortcut to the dialog box doesn't solve the problem, 
since it's a little bit disturbing (it's more an usability 
issue than a missing feature...).

Reassigned to Falko.

Why not just using the combo <ctrl>+c, <ctrl>+v?

It is too complicate to duplicate objects.
Instead of invoking the dialogue (Edit - Duplicate) we should use this
entry to just duplicate the exsiting object (assign CTRL+D as hotkey). 
To access the old dialogue we will add a new menu entry "Edit -
Duplicate options..." (CTRL+SHIFT+D hot key)

This feature would seem to be covered by the simple Ctrl-C followed by Ctrl-V
key combination. A somewhat related issue is how objects are added to the
drawing. If you are adding a number of boxes and connecting arrows it is
tiresome to have to keep clicking the icon you want on the Drawing toolbar.
There should be a shortcut to reselect the last tool used.

To grep the issues easier via "requirements" I put the issues currently lying on
my owner to the owner "requirements".
