It's been a long standing gripe that when you cut and paste elements from one PDF into another that the precise position is lost. Illustrator and InDesign both support this feature. Has this been addressed in the XI version?
As of the current version the ETI tool uses "paste in place offset" - it respects the original position of the copied item but offsets the pasted object by a major nudge step in X and Y. This was necessary because if the pasted item is exactly on top of the original, the ETI tool cannot choose which to select.
Is this only a Mac OS problem or does it also apply to the Windows version?
(I'm using Acrobat X Pro on a Windows system and Acrobat XI Pro with OS X; the "object tool" of Acrobat X Pro on Windows does a paste-in-place.)
Hi, Dave. I'm using 11.0.03. How do you execute a "major nudge"? I've tried the usual modifier keys with the arrows to no effect. (And, oddly, it's not turning up in a search.) Personally, I would rather default to paste in place with NO offset. If it lands on top of something else, it can be major nudged at that point, then major nudged back. Oh well.
