Duplicating Objects

InDesign gives us several ways to duplicate objects—copying and pasting, Paste in Place, Duplicate, Step and Repeat, and Option/Alt-Dragging.

Copying and Pasting

You can cut, copy, and paste objects in InDesign with the Selection, Direct Selection and Type tools. When choosing Paste from the Edit menu (or pressing Command-V/Ctrl-V), InDesign pastes the object in the center of the current page or spread. You may need to be careful about which page the object is copied to. InDesign places the object on the targeted spread—the one whose number is highlighted in the Pages palette and displayed in the lower-left corner of the document window—not necessarily the page that is visible on screen.
