Is there a way to keep new duplicate values in duplicate function in LibreOffice Draw 5 (as with previous versions)?

My system: Ubuntu 16.04, LibreOffice 5
The duplicate function (Shift F3) in previous versions of LibreOffice Draw retained the “placement” values that one entered until new values are entered. In so doing, repeated duplications requiring the same placement shift could be done easily without having to repeatedly type in the required placement values. The current version resets these placement values to a default. Now repeated duplications require typing in the placement shift with every duplication.
Is there a way to retain the last placement values entered so that repeated duplications follow the same pattern?
