Has this been changed in 2019? I use this all the time and now am only getting.
Haven't seen any settings on this anywhere, it just always worked by default. Thoughts?
Right-clicking while dragging to move (or to scale, or rotate, or skew) works as expected for me in 2019 to create a copy during the operation.
The right-click turns it into a copy operation, but I can do that at any time during the drag; doesn't have to be at the destination. Releasing the left mouse button is what triggers the "I'm done" for the operation.
In comparison, hitting the spacebar while dragging to move, scale, etc. produces a copy "on the fly" with each press of the spacebar, and allows multiple copies in the same operation.
Interesting. It works as expected with my mouse. I have always used my pen/tablet and that's where the right click isn't creating a copy.
Thanks for the info. Had no idea the space bar would create a copy. Although, it is creating two copies for each click. Must have something wonky somewhere :-)

Same in X7. I've always used the right click method anyway.
You use the space bar when you want to create two or more copies; it works as a "stamping" tool and the copy is always placed at the place where you press the space bar. The last copy is placed at the place where you release the mouse button. Very useful if you want to, let's say, put a lot of stars in the sky or something like that.
I work with a tablet also and I have the main button assigned to pan-one-shot, therefore I can't use it to drag and create a copy; so what I did was I bought a USB numeric keyboard and put it to the left of my main keyboard, that way I can drag with the pen and press the "plus" key on the numeric keyboard with my left hand to make a copy
