Version 7 saw the introduction of five new paste operations. Paste operations are accessible from the Programs Edit menu or from the right click context menu.
- Paste Position - This option applies the position of a copied object on the clipboard to a currently selected object, which moves to the exact same position as the copied object. If multiple items have been copied to the clipboard, Designer Pro treats them as if they are a group and moves the currently selected object to the position of the copied group as a whole. The currently selected object is pasted or moved into the center position of the copied object or group of objects.
- Paste Size - This option applies the size of a copied object on the clipboard to a currently selected object, which resizes around its center to the exact size of the copied object. If multiple items have been copied to the clipboard, Designer Pro treats them as if they are a group and resizes the currently selected object around its center to the exact size of the copied group as a whole.
When using paste size onto multiple selected objects, the size is applied to each object individually, instead of to the selection as a whole. For example if you copy a 200x200 pixel photo, then select 10 other photos and ‘paste size’, all 10 photos each become 200x200 pixels. This gives a quick way to make a bunch of objects a particular size.
- Paste replacing selection - This is similar to Paste position, except that the copied object on the clipboard replaces the currently selected object and retains the deleted item's position. The copied object is pasted into the center position of the deleted object.
- Paste in place in current layer - The same as Paste in current layer, except your object will be pasted into the current layer in the exact same position from which you copied it.
Version 7 also supports the ability to copy & paste an entire page. Click here for more information
