Text Copy

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

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


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


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


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