Duplicating and the Dock in Mac OS 10.3.4 - Macromedia Freehand

    Default Duplicating and the Dock in Mac OS 10.3.4

    Whenever I try to duplicate something in Freehand 10, I use the
    "Option-Command-D" found under the Edit menu. That's because if I type it in
    manually instead of using the mouse, the Dock comes up from it's little hiding
    place. If I set the Dock to stay out, using this command will hide it.
    Nothing in System or Dock Preferences will get me out of this problem. Has
    Macromedia released a fix for this? Has anyone else experienced this and
    solved it? I'd really like to know, as I'm creating a dozen medical forms and
    duplicating the lines is getting frustrating.

    You can simply change the keyboard command shortcut in FreeHand... I assign
    custom shortcuts for all sorts of functions within FreeHand, as I find it
    quicker to use the keyboard rather than mouse around through the menus all of
    the time. Look under your Edit menu and take it from there... your dock problem
    will vanish. It's too bad that Macromedia didn't properly address this OS X
    issue, but it's easily side-stepped via this method. But be warned: once you
    start assigning your own shortcuts, you just might find it completely
    addictive.
