My file has multiple artboards and I need to copy an object on one artboard and paste it in the same place on all the other artboards.

My co-worker showed me it once and I didn't write it down!

Select the object.

Choose Edit > Cut (yes, use cut. It will copy the object and remove it from the current artboard. This is what you want)

Now choose Edit > Paste on All Artboards

That will paste the object on all artboards, including the one you removed it from, in the same relative position on the artboard.

Press "ctrl+c" after "alt+ctrl+shift+v" to paste same object on multiple artboard at same time

  • Yes, but technically the question has been answered already. This shortcut does the same thing Scott said in 2015: running the Edit > Paste on All Artboards menu item.
