Light Copy

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

Gamgi expects users to identify first the light or list of lights to copy. When the Light entry is active and empty, clicking the mouse over the window graphic area creates a menu with all the layer lights (local selection), which can then be selected and the identification transported to the Light entry. Pressing the List button, the current list of lights is selected instead.


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


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


After identifying the light or list of lights to copy, GAMGI expects users to identify a layer to where the lights 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 lights, the copies can also be created at the layer of each original light, by setting Layer to Local.
