What is the hotkey for "Paste in place"?


Sorry to ask a basic question, but what is the keyboard shortcut for Paste in Place?

Nothing is listed here:

Nor here:


That indicates there isn’t a hot key by default. You can make one, though, in Preferences. That’s what I did because I use it all the time.

Hello! Like Dave said, Paste in Place doesn’t have a predefined shortcut. I’d advise you to set the shortcut to Ctrl+Shift+V, like mine. That combination can be found in other 3D and 2D applications and it has become more or less a standard. Good luck!

Can anyone tell me why Paste in Place doesn’t have a hotkey??
Surely Paste in Place is one of the most useful functions!

Because of this, I’ve inverted @VahePaulman suggestion in my preferences …

  • Ctrl + V → paste in place
  • Ctrl + Shfit + V → paste

@Cotty what a rebel! Living dangerously…

(I’m going to do that too)

I use Alt+V easier to hit than 3 buttons. :wink:


I use “ñ” a single key… Advantages of the Spanish keyboard, that key is usually never assigned

on a mac, you can’t assign shortcuts with command, they are taken by apple.

so if cmd+v is paste, can’t have cmd+shift+v for paste in place

But as I do most of my classes on a pc, I have both ctrl and cmd muscle memory at the same time.

so cmd V is paste, and I added ctrl v as paste in place.

I also have assigned the letter “Ñ” as a shortcut, but not for paste in place, the shortcut for paste in place is just “V”

v – same here, also c for copy, z for undo and y for redo.
