"Move to Page" Should Paste in an Empty Area (not on top of other elements)

When using “Move to Page” to move frames from one page to another, the frames that are moved are often automatically pasted on top of other existing frames on that page.

Sometimes, if moving a whole batch of artboards at once, when they get pasted on top of other artboards it creates a big mess and separating them is unnecessary work.

The moved items should instead be pasted in a blank area with no content by default to prevent this from happening.

Just to add some context, this is happening because when moving objects to another page, they remain on the same absolute coordinates. So if you had a rectangle at (50, 50) and you move the circle at (50, 50) to the same page — they will overlap.
