Quick Duplication

Four ways to duplicate objects in CorelDRAW other than Copy and Paste:

  1. Ctrl + D: to put a duplicate "Duplicate Distance" away.
  2. Numpad +: to duplicate with zero offset.
  3. Right-click (a   sign will appear) while moving, rotating, or transforming objects and then release to drop a duplicate.
  4. Spacebar while moving, rotating, or transforming objects.

To change the Duplicate Distance

  1. Select nothing (click on blank space on the drawing window)
  2. Type values in the X (Horizontal offset) and Y (Vertical offset) boxes on the Property Bar

Or click Tools > Options > Document > General then type values in the X and Y boxes.

I have found the right click to be the quickest. You can also use Ctrl D to repeat the dupe and added transformation using the same increments. Duplicate an object then manually move, rotate, enlarge, etc. then hit Ctrl D again and see what happens.
