Paste item and retain timeline position?

Jan 05, 2023

Is there a way to copy an item and paste it to another slide or project and retain the timeline position?

I have slides with many items specifically timed on the timeline, but when I copy/paste them to a new slide, all the items paste to the beginning of the timeline. It's very time-consuming to redo the timing positions every time.

Hello J T,

Happy to help! Unfortunately, there isn't a way to change the default behavior in Storyline 360. You'll need to use the Paste Special command to have access to the special options: 

The good news is that keyboard shortcuts work, so you can just press Ctrl+Alt+V to do a 'Paste Special' without having to go through the right-click menu. 

Hope this helps!
