Copy Paste Actor in Windows Causes GameSalad To Close

mamasdinermamasdiner Posts: 3Member, PRO


Apologies if this question has been asked before, but I couldn't locate any recent posts on the issue, so thought I'd ask here.
I've purchased a game template from GShelper and I'm trying to modify it, however, I can not figure out how to copy/paste an actor, so that I do not have to recreate every rule attached to it.

I'm designing on a PC. I've tried Ctrl+C and also tried to copy paste from the Edit button, but both cause GameSalad to crash.

Anyone have ideas? Is this even possible?

Thanks in advance!

    Are you trying to copy and paste within a project file? If so, try alt-dragging instead. At least on a Mac, you can option-drag an actor to duplicate it (rules and all).

    @tatiang I did try the ALT drag option after finding it in an old forum post, but it didn't work either. Frustrated. :(

    Anyone have ideas? I'm beginning to wonder if my GS is corrupt?
