If you select an object and then double-click on the Selection tool, you might be surprised when the Move dialog box opens. This unexpected feature lets you specify an amount that you would like the object to move along the X and Y axis or you can type in a Distance for the object to move at a specified angle. Press OK and the object will move the exact distance you specified. Press Copy and a duplicate of the object will be created. If you’re familiar with Illustrator, this Move dialog window is no great surprise, because it works almost exactly the same way in AICS2.
