Shortcut – Clone shapes and set axis to be aligned horizontally or vertically

Clone a shape and keep it aligned to the horizontal or vertical axis. Hit and hold Ctrl+Shift (which is Cmd+Shift on the Mac) and drag the shape to clone it. You’ll recognize that you can only position the new shape either above/beneath or at the left/right side of the original shape.
