Embrace a new way to paste in place (Illustrator CS4/CS5/CC/CC 2014/CC 2015/CC 2017)

Some programs offer a precise Past in Place option. Illustrator has a Paste in Front and Paste in Back, which is a great feature. But there is yet another lesser known way to paste an object in place Illustrator: Use the Rotate tool! First, choose the Selection tool from the Tools panel and then click on the object to select it. Double-click on the Rotate tool in the Tools panel to open the Rotate dialog box. Simply set the angle at 0 degrees and click Copy. Illustrator closes the dialog box and copies and pastes in place a duplicate of your selection!
