How do I Copy/Paste entity without same name?

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Sun Apr 09, 2017 2:55 pm

I have a text box with a number of parameters preset, and I like the look of it. I'd like to copy/reuse this textbox for other elements in the game, but when I use CTRL-C, then CTRL-V, the newly pasted textbox has the same name as the original. When I edit the "Name" parameter of this new textbox (to make it, it's own), the name of the source/original textbox gets changed to the new name as well.

Is there a way to Paste without the same name, or a way to "de-couple" copied elements?

Thanks!

Right-click lets you "clone" the object, rather than "copy" the object.
