Paste and Snap a Clip in the Timeline?

When pasting a clip in a Premiere Pro sequence timeline, is there a way to have the pasted clip immediately snap to the nearest clip in the timeline? When I activate the "Snap" magnet in the timeline, it only snaps clips that I am actively moving, but not if I paste them. If I need to paste a bunch of clips into gaps throughout a timeline, it would be handy if when I pasted the clips, they also snapped to the nearest clip relative to the playhead.

No it will paste where the playhead is.

If the clips will snap to the nearest clip that would be an undesired behaviour.

If you need to paste clips in gaps use the three/four point editing method.

I don't want it to always snap to the nearest clip. I want to be able to engage it when needed. That I way I don't have to be as precise when placing the playhead near the clip I want the pasted clip to connect to. 

And I am currently desiring that behavior, lol. The link you provided is very basic and includes way too many keystrokes for the action I am wanting to do.

Go to their UserVoice site, and post a detailed description of what you want to happen for your feature item.

 

Then post a link back here and elsewhere inviting other users to vote it up. Maybe enough will that they'll look at adding this.
