    How to create macro in Indesign for pasting symmetrically in a spread?

    dsev1 Level 1

      I cannot find a shortcut for copy/pasting in place ACROSS a spread symmetrically.  For examples, like on a master page, you may want have the page numbers equidistant from the edges of the pages.

       

      I'd like to know if someone may know how to do this OR if maybe a macro/scripting could be made.

       

      I figure out a formula for the new X value of the object that one would be copying and pasting:

       

      2* (Page Width) - (original X Value of object) - (Width of object)

       

      (see below).

       

      Any ideas on how to expedite this?

       

      Thanks!
