Is it possible to past in place on one (selected) artboard instead of all artboards?

Edit > Paste in Front


Edit > Paste in Back

These will paste in place on the current active artbard.

You can then simply move the object forward/backwards if needed.

That doesn't work in Illustrator CS6. Even when selecting an object on the destination artboard, the object is copied back to its original location on the source artboard. – user38045 Feb 6 '15 at 17:22
Hi Richard, This question was asking about the same artboard. If you have a different question, please feel free to post it. – Scott Feb 6 '15 at 17:27

1.- Command + C to copy de element.

2.- Select the artwork do you want to place the element by just click it.

3.- Command + F, and see what happens ;)
