After Effects alt-drag to copy items

A rather general accepted behaviour throughout many graphics apps is alt-dragging to copy things.
wouldn't it be great if in AE we could copy Project items this way, in stead of choosing Duplicate and then remove the automatically added sequential number?
Same for Layers: alt drag to copy them to the right place in hierarchy in one go, would be fast and convenient.

C4d: Add All Used Object Buffers

For some reason, adding output channels for the Object Buffers in the Render Settings is very uncomfortable.
Why not add an option 'Add All Used Object Buffers'?

Adobe Illustrator two step numeric scale is broken

One of my favourite Ai tricks is what I call 'two step numberic scale'.
Is use it to match typography to the size of other objects.
Typography has some characteristics that makes the bounding box not usable: rounded characters are optically aligned to the baseline, x-height and cap height.
I had this trick to first scale vertical, by snapping vertices, and then copy the resulted vertical scale to horizontal. But for some reason Ai 2017 does not support this. When accessing the values in the scale dialog, all scale values are overwritten with some unimportant value.
Please repair this!
