Copying/pasting/moving clips around

It was bad enough we couldn't move patterns around but why does moving clips around always seem to mess something else up??? And is there a way to copy and paste clips from the middle of an arrangement to the end without using "duplicate"? Seems impossible to simply use already created clips where I want with some weird automatic decision made by Maschine (developers) that does something to screw my arrangement up, without me realizing it until I sit and listen to the whole thing.

And in some cases "undo" has to be hit a million times to get back to where I have to figure out How to get things to work as intended! And I'm not talking about hitting "undo" a million times because that's how many times I messed up, but rather it seriously should be this way. Shouldn't have to hit undo 50 times when all is needed is literally one time, LITERALLY! I'm referring to stretching the scenes. Undoing stretching a scene takes too many damn undo hits


Thanks

    Unfortunately, the whole clips thing needs major work, it takes some "Thinking Ahead" to prevent messing up an arrangement. Hopefully they will continue to improve the workflow...🤔

    To copy a clip there is this simple way:

    In the arrange view, select the clip to be copied with the scroll wheel. Press shift+pad11 (copy), then position the playhead where you want to copy the clip and press pad12 (paste). Job is done

    I just tried this and got some very strange results (events moving to different sound slots, some events not being pasted etc...) I will give it another go later to see if I may be doing something wrong!

    Indeed, before copying you have to select the first sound that has an event. Like this it will work.

    Yeah, I can see myself forgetting to do that a lot...🤪

    Is there a way to copy and paste a clip with the mouse? I did It once but forgot how to do it.

    Select all aevents in the clip, create a new (empty) clip, Paste events...

    Thank god I'm not the only one asking why this haven't been implemented. It's been years already. "DUPLICATE" was a step ahead, but then you have to keep moving everything around or it will mess up the other clips. C'mon guys, even DAW's from the 80's could do this. 🤦‍♂️
