Copy and Paste

Recommended Posts

Pasting directly over the copied item is useful for drawings, where you might want to add light or shade with a white or black gradient fill, but pasting in the centre of the view is probably more generally useful in a page layout app. There should be a Preferences setting for the default behaviour, and a modifier key such as Option/Alt for on-the-fly switching to the alternative behaviour.

+1 for the option to choose - paste in place can be handy, but can also result in duplicates getting left in place when you're interrupted by a phone call!
