Can someone please tell me how to copy/paste large areas of vegetation?  I want to do a full ecosystem using palms, grass, trees etc.   I have created an area next to a river with the relevant plants and now wish to randomly cover the whole landscape with them.

In object mode, i press 'trees' and ctrl+left click to select a rectangular area with no problems but what do i then use to copy/paste?   tried alt+ the move symbol as explained in the shortcuts section but nothing happens.

nice software tho, even if it is in it's infancy.    I'm a dedicated and longtime VUE user and it's refreshing to use something so quick to get into as Lumion


still need this question answering tho.

thx

Yes I agree - the need for a global object dynamic distribution tool is needed with
scale, density, rotation, overlapping on, intersecting off, and movement.

Once you have CTRL-selected the trees/plants, press ALT while you drag one of the selected objects to clone the selection. I'll clarify this in the Tips & Tricks thread.
