    While we’re still working to make the fix available for this issue, we suggest a workaround to overcome it.

    Open Preferences > Interface. At the bottom of this dialog, change “Live Screen Drawing” to “Never”.

    As mentioned above, we’re working to fix this issue.
    Hope this helps.

    I have 15.1.2 and still can't get option or alt drag duplicate to work.
    It's got to be one of the most commonly used shortcuts for designers so I don't understand why it's brocken and wasn't picked up before release!
    I've tried changing the Live Screen Drawing to never - didn't work. Also tried changing it to immediate (which I read somewhere else was a fix) - also didn't work.
    Bloody frustrating - now thinking about uninstalling an re-installing a previous version (2019).

    Has anyone else found a workaround that actually works?
    I'm on a PC, Windows 10 OS, Indesign 15.1.2

    Cheers

    UPDATE: I had a new computer and keyboard. For some reason the new keyboard was set-up for British configuration. I changed this to Australian preferences and voila - the alt / option drag is back! Hallelujah!!
