I'm working with Acrobat pro DC.
When I copy and paste an object to same page or the other page,
the object is always pasted to other position.
Can I paste it to same position?
Is there an option for that?
I could've done it with Acrobat pro 9.
Hello. This has been a behavior of Acrobat for many versions. A trick that I use to counter this is to paste the object, hold the control key down & tap the left arrow, followed by the up arrow. The paste offset seems to be 10 pixels right, and 10 pixels down. Nudging the pasted object with the control key moves in 10 pixel increments.
I hope this is helpful.
I'm not finding that holding the ctrl key and tapping the left arrow, followed by the up arrow works for me.
In Windows select the object to copy. move to the top of the page you want to paste it to, hold down both the Shift and Control keys and them press the "V" key. The object should shortly appear in the original position on the new page.
I've never wanted to hug a stranger so much in my life. Thank you for sharing this workaround.
To do this on a Mac hold option Command then press V
++Adding on to the correct answer given above.
For detailed information on ho to handle Images or objects, you can go through this latest help article here: How to edit images or objects in a PDF using Adobe Acrobat
ctrl-shift-v doesn't work for me but holding shift while clicking on paste in the edit menu or the right-click context menu works
Neither ways work for my abode acrobat pro dc......ha...........
Thanks, Sung Wook, for posting this question. I've been puzzled by this quirk for years and finally looked it up. Why can't "Paste in Place" be added to the menu in Acrobat? (And for that matter, why does Acrobat DC seem so unlike other Adobe applications, and seems like it's managed by a totally different company?)
