Cell Copy

Indicate here the number of cell copies to create and its destination.

Gamgi expects users to identify first the cell or list of cells to copy. When the Cell entry is active and empty, clicking the mouse over an cell, on the current layer (local selection), its identification is transported to the Cell entry. Pressing the List button, the current list of cells is selected instead.


This is the name given to the new cell copies. The default is to copy the name of each original cell.


This is the requested number of copies, a positive integer. The default is 1.


After identifying the cell or list of cells to copy, GAMGI expects users to identify a layer to where the cells should be copied. Pressing the mouse over the graphic area in any window (global selection), creates a menu with all the layers in that window, which can then be selected. The current layer is initially proposed in the Layer entry.

When copying a list of cells, the copies can also be created at the layer of each original cell, by setting Layer to Local.
