Hi all.

I hope to explain myself in the right way.

I have a content on a ID document. Test, images, logos.

I select all and I want to paste it on a new document with a different size but I'd like to have all the content at the cursor and then click and drag to resize. As I do when I insert an image after a ctrl+D.

 

I also tried to create a box and do a "paste into" but is disabled.

 

Is it possible?

 

Thanks for your help.

I don't think that is possible exactly as you want, even dragging and dropping would not allow you to place the elements by clicking one by one. One thing you could investigate is the content collector tool, using this you can collect all the content that you want from the source document and then place it on the destination. See the following video for more details

Thank you Manan for your answer.

I didn't know the collector tool, very useful.

Otherwise I need to move all the content (grouped) in another document with the same proportions but smaller.

That's why I asked. I need to resize all the group proportionally.

Now I do it manually so I asked if was possible to do it by clicking and dragging as if I insert a content via CTRL+D
