Simple tool to paste same alignment from where copied?


Hey folks.

I have often run into an issue where I want to copy elements from one group, and paste those objects into a new group at the same location and alignment as where they came from. However when I do the past command into another group, it always comes in at some other angle of rotation.



Have you tried using Paste in Place in the Edit menu?


That made me very happy…can’t believe I never saw that.

Thanks Dave.


Excellent! I use Paste in place a great deal. I almost never use the regular Paste. I set up a keyboard shortcut for Paste in place to make it faster.


Good idea - Think I’ll do the same.

Would have helped me on some very subtle complex curves and geometry like the Ped

bridge I did.
