There must be a way to accept the suggested location, or why would it even offer one?  This is really frustrating.  Even if I try to paste EXACTLY where the blue box is initially, it is off by an inch or so.

I don't suppose anyone has stumbled on the answer?

Use Windows copy paste then select Paste/Aligned to Same Place on the Clipboard toolbar.

I dont have a solution to this problem but have been searching for one for years now. It seems to be one that is hard to explain, let alone fix (judging by this and some of the other forums out there).

Rest assured I and others in my office also find it extremely annoying!!! All we want is to just accept the default blue ghosted suggested paste location which is usually spot on, and no, this is not the same as hitting paste aligned. its like Revit does all the hard work for you but doesnt let you harness that.

 

RRR.

Hi All, 

 

I tried this with RAC 2102 looks like it works ( even between two projects) if you do the following.

a) Ctrl+ X then go to the other project.

b) Ctrl + V (plz wait till you get the blue dashed line  suggested by Revit ) then

c) go to the modify tab, and then use Paste to aligned levels .

If you still want the pasted object in the original project just undo the Ctrl +X and you have the objects in both the projects.

It works perfectly fine I tried for a couple of projects.

I shall try uploading an image as to how I actually did it in my next post.

 

Regards,

Dev

After pasting the object to the new sheet, but before actually finalising the command. To drop pasted object at same coordinate position on the page (i.e. where the ghosted position with box appears) Go to MODIFY>CLIPBOARD>PASTE>ALIGNED TO SAME PLACE.

 

This will drop it where you want. only 2 clicks of the mouse button away, but I do agree it could be simpler. Hitting Return should do it but it doesn't. Sad

If you like the suggested location, just hit the zero and return.

I am running latest build Revit 2015 and the 0>enter trick does not work. I am in sheet view, pasting annotations betweeen sheets. Pressing 0 and then enter just brings up the create new sheet dialogue box. Still have to use the Paste options on the menu bar.

Sorry - this thread was not about elements on sheets but about elements in model views.  Your post was correct for sheets.

What i've found recently: it's almost impossible to paste ising Ctrl+V into the same place if you use different models.

So my appraoch was:

  • group everything you need to transfer;
  • select the group;
  • note the level the gorup is inserted;
  • go to the other model, select the same level and "paste alligned to current level'
  • NEVER EVER SPLIT THE MODEL AGAIN.
