When doing a copy/paste (menu or keyboard) the pasted object is not pasting in the same place as the copied object, as it did previously. I know that in other programs you can specify where the paste occurs (middle of page, x,y coordinates, etc). Does designer have a method of specifying where the pasted object occurs?

I assuming I could use the duplicate function...but I'd rather have the option of copy/paste in the same place and Duplicate for other locations.

Copy/Paste behaves as paste in place for me, I use v1.8.4 and I’m on Mac.

As far as I understand it, the Copy/Paste functionality should always paste back to the same location unless you have selected a different Artboard (in Designer) or a different page (in Publisher) between the Copy and Paste. (There may be other scenarios but these are the main ones.)
If you are seeing some other functionality then uploading a video of this happening may give us some ideas about what’s going on.

This was an easy solution/fix, once I figured out what was happening. It seems that this only happens when copy/pasting something off of the page/artboard. (I often work off of the artboard then move into place). I falsely assumed that the copy/paste behaviors were the same on the artboard as off.
