Can't get out of Duplicate mode

I know this is stupid, but I can't figure out how to get out of Duplicate mode so that I can select and move my shape. I tried tapping on "Duplicate" again like it said and everything else I can think of, but I am still trapped in Duplicate hell. What am I missing?

Hi Chris, 

So the duplicate feature will be updated shortly to be a bit more intuitive, but for now, to activate it and deactivate it, you simply tap the circle with the 3 yellow dots that appear when you select a curve. Once you select a curve tap on the little circle and that will open up two more options, one of which is duplicate (purple). Tap that to activate it. The yellow dots turn to a purple icon to indicate duplicate is activated. To turn it off, tap on the icon again, and tap duplicate again to disable it. 

You should be able to move objects from the side view, but first you need to be able to select the object. It may be that selecting the object from the side view isn't working, but once selected. you should be able to use the arrows in the lower corner to move the curves as you desire. 

Lastly, double check to see if you did not lock a layer (layers are located in the side panel). If you accidentally locked a layer, this will prevent you from being able to move whatever objects are on that layer. 

 

I hope this advice helps, and that you've been able to figure out how to turn duplicate off. If you have any further questions, don't hesitate to let us know.

To provide a little more context, I'm doing the sketch a table tutorial, and I'm trying to go to side view and raise the table up -- only when I select the table I'm not getting the option pop-ups around the table that the video shows. I'm only getting Duplicate (which I used earlier in making the table legs). 

Okay, so the UI has changed since the tutorials were made. I was able pan the camera around and get to an angle where I was able to raise the table surface, but I can't move it up from a side view like it shows in the tutorial, which is stranage and frustrating. 

I feel like I must be missing something. How do I raise or lower the table surface while in side view?
