I know this is an idea stolen from Sketch, but I think it is worth stealing as it is good!
- Copy an item from one part of the canvas
- Move to where you want to insert it
- Right click the mouse and one of the right click menu items is Paste here
- This allows you to paste in the spot of choice
The current behaviour is once you’ve copied something, if you paste it pastes on top of the original item, which is useful if you need it, but not useful if you have already moved around the canvas.
