Can anyone tell me why (and hopefully a way to fix) when you copy multiple layers in one comp and paste them into another often they paste in reversed layer order? With every release its one of the first things i try to see if Adobe has fixed but surprisingly its still an issue, for me anyways, anyone else consistently have this problem?

Actually, the order in which you SELECT the layers determines the order in which they're pasted. Here's an explanation:

And if you're already doing that, I'd say you have a legitimate gripe. It works for me, across a few versions, in fact.
