For almost one year, I've been using exclusively AutoGUI to edit AHK scripts. Before that, I was also using AkelPad, where Ctrl+D inserts date and time. Most Scintilla-based text editors use Ctrl+D to duplicate line because that's a pre-defined behavior of the Scintilla control. In AutoGUI, a line is duplicated with Ctrl+Down (you can see a list of all keyboard shortcuts by going to Help > Keyboard Shortcuts).

Download the latest version of AutoGUI and AutoHotkey and try again.

Control+D is used by many other editors and is probably easier to remember.

AutoGUI is already very user friendly but it can be improved by adding keyboard shortcuts customization.
I know of other applications which implement different shortcut sets to help users migrate; by re-mapping shortcuts anyone can use the program shortcuts he's already familiar with.

Is there any way to re-enable the designer mode after accidentally changing something but reverting the change again? How does AutoGui check if the file has been modified or not?
Re-parsing via the import option doesn't work since it doesn't import all options from the old script.

When you leave Design Mode, you are asked whether you want to disconnect the GUI Designer (no way back) ou duplicate the tab contents (so that you can edit the generated code in one tab while having the GUI Designer active on another tab). If you have not yet finished designing the GUI, always choose the second option.

Basically: SCI_GETMODIFY, a Scintilla message. The whole process also involves SCI_SETSAVEPOINT and the notifications SCN_SAVEPOINTREACHED and SCN_SAVEPOINTLEFT.
