Eric ChardPasting multiple keys, from the END key

I've copied several keys, simultaneously.

Now, I want to paste them down, but with the LAST key at the timeline marker, not the first.

Possible to do in one operation? Or do I have to move them later?

They are pasted wherever your current time indicator is, so if you have the duration then it should be an easy matter of placing the current time indicator minus the duration.

Mr. Chard
Just paste the keys on a layer in the same order.
Now, reverse the animation by pressing "Cntr/Cmnd + Alt/Opt + R".
This will make you last key the first one.
Copy the new set of key frames.

That is a very interesting technique, thank you for bringing it to my attention.

It's not quite what I need, which admittedly is just a very minor time saving in that I wouldn't have to slide the newly pasted keys to the desired time.

My request (which doesn't appear to be possible with some sort of modifier) was targeted at when you have a set of keys in which the final keyframe is the critical point, rather than the initial key in the copied set. I'd hoped that perhaps some key combo was already extant that implemented that form of pasting. Ah well.

Thanks everybody for their input.
