How do I "Paste in Place?"

Hi guys

I'm trying to copy some objects from a layer in one layout into a layer in another.

Is there a way to "paste in place"? I always have to manually reposition the objects.

Thank you in advance!

Put the objects on a layer set to 'Global=Yes' then, every time you use that layer, on loading the layout all of the objects will be in the same original place. You can make this global layer on its own layout too, that is outside of the game flow. Position your objects here and make it global.

Edit: Just realised, if you're talking about purely so you can paste them into view to mess around with in layout view, you could lock all of the layers except the one you want, Ctrl+A, copy, paste in new layout.

I use ctr+v+shift and then click, then it pastes in to place!
