    I'm using a Mac to develop with Gamer Maker Studio 2. I'm trying to "draw" multiple instances into a room by dragging the mouse while holding the Alt key, though I understand this must be exclusive to PC. I'm following Shaun's platformer tutorial where he mention's "drawing" instances by holding down Alt and dragging the cursor inside the room.

    Does anyone know how to "draw" instances with Mac? I've tried holding Alt and dragging but that pans the window view instead (for me anyways).

    I couldn't find it listed in the documentation but I'm pretty sure it's command key.

    Actually I just found out that it's still Alt + LMB, but it has to be the Right Alt key on Mac. It's a little weird that way but at least I know now.

    Mac keyboards do not have an Alt key. Use the option key.
