Shortcuts to Success: Paste in Place

Sure, there are huge lists of InDesign keyboard shortcuts out there, but are you going to sit down and memorize them all? We're here to help you learn some handy new ones, one by one, making it easier to add them to your mental list. Each week, we'll highlight a different shortcut to help you work faster, better and smarter.
Paste in Place
command + option + shift + V

If you want to put stuff in the same exact place on a different page, this is for you. Select the original object(s) with the Selection Tool (black arrow), go to the new page, and Paste in Place. (It's also in the Edit Menu). Everything will be in the exact same position! It works with different documents, too, as long as the pages are the same size and orientation.

Got a favorite keyboard shortcut you'd like to share with everyone? Email it to us at and we'll include it in our series, along with your own commentary if you'd like.
