Feature: Paste in place

  • Ctrl+F in Illustrator pastes in the exact same spot

  • California you may want to talk about why you want particular functionality and how it will benefit us instead of just stating that another app does this. That may give them some actual reason to look at implementing a feature.

  • We consider feature suggestions without a compelling use case description with a much lower priority. If you can explain some great reasons why a feature would actually be good, then we might be more convinced to actually implement it.

  • Ashley - I can't speak for California obviously, but I could see this being pretty useful when wanting to copy and paste objects from one layout to another while retaining the same position.

    i.e. other layer, other layout, or when copy-pasting between projects.

    A practical example:

    I want to make a bumpmapping effect, I have all my textures ready in different frames within a sprite (frame 0=DiffuseMap, 1=NormalMap etc) and I want to copy/paste all the "normal" instances on a different layer with the bumpmapping webGL effect, at the exact place that the "diffuse" instances are. Selecting all instances and pasting them manually requires a lot of nudging to get them in the same place, which is inconvenient when you have a lot of sprites all around the layout.

    Alternatively, a duplicate layer option (with all it's contents) will suffice and I see that there is already a request for that on an other post

  • This is an old thread. It's now supported. Hold shift as you click with the paste crosshair.

    You are right, I am sorry.

    From the manual:

    "To paste objects in-place (so they paste at their original positions, instead of relative to the mouse), hold Shift while placing a paste. The full process is: Ctrl + C to copy an object; press Ctrl + V to turn the mouse to a crosshair, hold Shift and click, all objects paste at their original positions (instead of by the mouse) and the mouse returns to a normal cursor."
