Layout mode changes

Functionality removed from FileMaker 12 in layout mode, why?

 

- When duplicating an item on a layout, a standard practice is to hold option as you drag to duplicate it.  That works, however you can no longer hold the SHIFT button simultaneously to keep an item aligned while dragging.

 

- When you have multiple items selected you no longer see entries in the inspector under left and right position.  This makes it difficult to put these same items on a different layout in the exact same position.  I realize you can group them to get the co-ordinates but that forces group and ungroup unnecessarily.

 

- Will there be a way to adjust padding on a field.  This appears to be a hidden attribute on layouts that have themes applied.
