With InDesign (PC), I can shift-alt-drag an object to duplicate it. The x or y axis-movement of the object is constrained. Is there a way to re-create this maybe via Preferences in Illustrator CS4?
AltDrag is enough.
ShiftAltDrag constrains it to specific angles.
Edit: This applies to 10. I believe it should work in CS4 as well.
It it should and does not, it may be time to Ctrl+Alt+Shift during startup or Move the folder
