Quick Duplication

If you ever need to duplicate a layer (or multiple) to move somewhere else on the canvas, simply select the layer using the method described above (though any selection method will work), and hold ALT while clicking and dragging the layer.  It will drag out a duplicate, leaving your original where it was.  I use this all the time for creating multiple tabs or menu items, paragraphs of text, headings, boxes, pretty much everything.
Note: The duplicated layer will appear above the topmost selected layer in your layers palate, so if you like to keep your layers grouped and named nicely, you’ll have to move and name them manually to keep everything in order. (this is also one of the reasons I don’t bother in my initial designs).
