Opposite of Ctrl+J?

Hello all,

I know of Ctrl+J and how to combine two different objects into one with it. How do I create a new object which has the same vertices in the exact same place as in a mesh I already have?

I don’t need this function for any spesific reason, but having it available would have sped things up quite a few times. Do I really have to duplicate the whole object and then delete everything but what I want to keep?

Select the part you want to split in a new object and press P.

If I understand correctly. Shift-d and then esc. Shift d duplicates the mesh and esc gets you out of grab mode.

This was what I was after. Thanks for both of you!
