I like using the 'copy' commands as introduced in ver 8.1 - i.e. using Alt or Alt+Command to get 'copy' versions of Drag, Rotate and Mirror. But they don't work in Plotmaker - result is that every time I want to drag a copy in Plotmaker, I end up moving the item I wanted to copy! - Very annoying! Can't these controls be incorporated in Plotmaker?

Also I find that if I open an old .LAY type layout in Plotmaker 9, the status of the .PMK files shows as 'Embedded' in Drawing Usage - but appear only as a diagonal cross - I have to relink these files.

Also! If I ask for a black & white vector preview, the view changes to 'frame only'. I have to select 'color preview' if I want to see the drawing on the screen.
