Heya! Haven't uploaded any videos due to laziness and since I got a good few people asking me how to duplicate, I made a short tutorial. Sorry for the typos :b
In case you can't read my oh so neat handwriting:
- Select the item with the select tool.
- Make sure you're selecting on the layer the item is on!
- Ctrl + c to copy and ctrl + v to paste.
- Move it wherever you'd like with the moving tool.
- To flip it go to Layer - Flip Horizontally, and that's it!
Any questions just ask c:

You can also just drag your layer to the ''new layer'' icon and it automaticaly copies it without doing all that

how to rotate the selected line art
Thx to ya
To duplicate or copy (pc)
1. create custom pen - u can right click that pen icon and rename that duplicated one as custom or.. anything
2. box the item/object using selection -> click select (eraser's and deselect's neighbour) -> copy -> click custom pen -> paste
3. use move button to move your item/object - after done, you can clear the duplicated selection - dont clear the selection if you want to flip or rotate the object
4. as shows above in the video - use layer option (L) to flip or rotate your duplicated object.
I love you.
But how do I duplicate and put it in the opposite way? When I work on the "linework" layer type?
thanks so much!!!
thank you so much this helped me so much!

How do i copy the outline on a not white background? I was outlining a drawing i did on real life and i did in the wrong layer and i want to move it to another layer:v
Why don't some people just verbally talk in SAI tutorials rather than using notepad or SAI itself? :u It's faster than writing what t hey say and constantly erasing/backspacing it
Umm... if you mind, can you make a redo of this video? A lot of people had problems because when they used the tool it says " Selection is empty" it's ok if you don't want to
don't work at me
