Could someone explain to me why (usually when pasting on a different layer) Paste in Place sometimes pastes the objects in the far top left of the document instead of where you'd expect ie...
Do you have multiple artboards in any of your documents? You must have the correct artboard selected when copying , and pasting or else you paste in place, front, back will apper to be not working.
Thanks Monika and Mike,
Despite them all appearing the same size, I'm assuming it must be something to do with that, as it appears to happen now and again. I've probably made one a different size and then deleted that layer or somethign as I'm not able to find it now, or replicate the pasting problem.
I just had exactly the same problem... but slightly different: when I "paste in front" my object on a different artboard (same size as the other one) my object appears on the far bottom right (apparently just the opposite of you)... It's really annoying as I'm using that function quite often.
Strangely if I use "paste in place" it works fine... is it the same for you? I mean have you tried other "paste" functions?
I suppose it is a bug but I even after restarting Illustrator it stays the same.
