I created a single piece art work in illustrator CS3 and all is well, prints perfectly aligned. No problems. However, now I realize I want to save paper and place multiples, up to 3 per page, to do so everything will need to change orientation so all 3 can fit to print out on a standard size piece of paper. Is it possible to copy all layers of text and images as one unit, rather than having to recreate the entire piece 2 more times and getting it perfectly aligned again. I have spent hours getting it perfect.
I have read the forums, but have not come up with this subject on any of them.
Select all, drag to move the selection, hold Shift to constrain the move along the dragging direction, hold Alt before dropping the selection in the desired place to make a copy of it.
Alternatively, you can copy all and using the edit menu, paste in front, back, or place, then move the selection with the arrow keys on the keyboard, holding Shift moves it faster.
