Duplicate Arrow bug

Hi I just wanted to report a bug I found. When you have an arrow created in a frame as a component, if you hold CTRL+D and try to left mouse drag, it freezes the app. Then when I close the tab and reopened it, it created about 50 -100 arrows all stacked on top of each other.

When you hold Ctrl + D, the selection will be duplicated with the speed of your key repeat settings. So I won’t call it a bug, it’s expected that while you are holding Ctrl + D it will create a lot of duplicates. This amount of objects can definitely freeze Figma on slow computers or in large files.
