Default Size question

Whenever I copy a polygon with a specific size, its duplicate has size 1,1,1 (even though it has the same size as the original). Is there a way to get the proper sizes on the duplicates?

no because the new polygon doesn't have the construction history of the other one. So when you duplicate the history is new and thus the size is 1 1 1. You would have to make a new polygon and then apply the same transform to it as the oether one. Should be a simple script to write.

in the duplicate options, put a check on the input graph option. This will duplicate with history attached.
