Pasting into place
on Jan 11, 2008 at 5:30:57 pm

Hello,

I know this must be available someplace. I have two documents is PS CS3 (both pretty large) and I want to cut items from one to the other, but in the exact location (x and y). I know I can select the layer I need, stroke the entire document, then paste, and delete that stroke, but like Flash, there has to be a "paste into place" somewhere right?

Thanks in advance,

T

Hello T,

Both documents must be open, the same dimensions and resolution. You will choose the layer you want to place from the layers palette of the source document. Then choose "Layer > Duplicate Layer". From the Duplicate Layer dialog box, choose the destination document from the drop down list and press ok. The source layer will now be placed in the exact same position on the destination document.

Hope this helps.

Jim

Thanks Jim,

I also found out that dragging the layer to another document (with the same parameters that you outlined) while holding "shift" would do the same thing.

Good times!

T
