FileMaker 12 changed function of Option + Shift keys in layout mode?

Previous to FileMaker Pro 12 the following was the case in layout mode using a Mac.


Holding the Shift key while dragging an object would constrain it's original alignment.


Holding Option would create a copy of the object.


Holding both Shift and Option would create a duplicate of the object constrained to the same vertical and horizontal orientation of the original object.


FileMaker Pro 12 Shift and Option work as expected but holding both Shift and Option simply duplicate the object.


This was a useful feature allowing you to quickly create a number of aligned duplicate objects.


Is this now expected behviour or a bug?
