Paste in place not working properly in Photoshop

Community Beginner ,

The 'paste in place' function in photoshop seems to have stopped working when an image is over the edge of the artboard. Instead the image is pasted inside the artboard. 

 

Any ideas how to fix this? Is there a setting somewhere that has changed?

 

Thanks for your help.

I do not use Artboards. Are you sure that Paste in Places supports pasting outside the artboard area. Where would the place be that the clipboard would be pasted in place.

Thankyou JJMack for your response.

 

Yes - I've been using it for 2 years to create repeat pattern tiles.

It's also used as standard by pattern designers.

Paste in place means that the image is copied and pasted in exactly the same place in the same document.

Even in normal document I only seem to use Paste and Paste Into.  I do not know if there is a different between Paste and Paste In Place. Its amazing even having used Photoshop for 20+ years I did not know the exact operation of an operation like Paste in Place. Now I do.  Paste in Placed center the pasted layer  like a drag and drop with the shift key pressed. When I edit it seems I drag and drop  between document and in  a documents  I do a copy paste move actually Ctrl+J move.  One develops habits using Photoshop and also forget things they might have known..

I was just about to post this bug. It's been here since release and can't believe they've still not fixed it. Such a huge bug for an image editting program.

Hello,

I have updated PS to 21.1.2 and still have the issue with paste in place. Each time that I use the paste in place command, the image does not actually paste in place, it pastes in the general area. Could you please help?

Thanks,

John

I just posted another question, about this exact thing, but now I found your question. So I am saddened to know that this is a problem that still hasn't been fixed. I too use PS for patterns but have been trying out the textile designer for the past 6 months. I decided I don't like it and went back to manually using my actions. Now my actions don't work. If an item is even slightly ON the canvas the paste in place works. But unfortunately for half-drop repeats and being able to extract a tile for patterns you need items off the canvas. Hopefully, they fix this soon.

I just see this solution in another post, and work for me:

 

Create a new layer, fill with white. Link it to the layer you want to copy.

Drag both to new document and snap white to edges, delete white layer.

 

Wait I just see another important thing. Be sure that both of your files haves the same resolution!

Hope it helps!
