Can I duplicate an object by holding down the option keywhen I click Okay in the dialog box?

I used this ALL the time but I can't find it in CS6. I am running Mac OS 10.8.2, CS6.

    What dialog box are you referring to? Several have a "copy" button in them for just this purpose.

    You could try trashing your Illustrator preferences. Here's a link to where they are located: http://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/kb/preference-file-location-illustr ator.html

     

    Or you could try the devilishly-hard-to-get-the-timing-right keyboard shortcut:  option+command+shift  IMMEDIATELY after starting Illustrator.

    Tip: hover your fingers over the keys and be ready to mash down just as you release the mouse from starting Illustrator.

     

    Be aware that you will lose your preferences so once you've gone to the trouble of setting up custom preferences, save a copy to a safe place.

    Igryfe,

     

    Do the instructions in Move the folder  work? Or you may see post #8 in this thread:

    It may not be that, of course.

     

    You may also have a look at Item 7) in  Other options and see whether that may reveal one of the usual suspects.
