How to paste layer to multiple composition at once?

I copy a layer from one composition and paste it into another composition. But there are more than 100 compositions. Is there a way to paste the selected compositions in the Project panel at once?

I'm afraid you'll have to get busy -- you must do it one comp at a time.

In case you'd like to use a script, it's 2 lines of code literally:

for (i = 1; i<=app.project.numItems; i++){
if ((app.project.item(i).typeName=="Composition") && (i!=1)) app.project.item(1).layer(1).copyToComp(app.project.item(i));
}


This copies the layer (app.project.item(1).layer(1)) to all comps. That's assuming that deleting it from the wrong comps is easier than copying it to the target ones.
