When copying text from another application the Paste or Paste Special puts the text in the center of the page even when zoomed to a small portion of the layout. Is there a reason the text cannot be placed at the cursor location when right clicking to get the Paste option?

If I R click > Paste a graphic on a map or layout, paste where I clicked, not offset at the origin. This would save a lot of chasing down, which is especially tricky and time consuming on large maps.

@wayfaringrob does this request contradict the idea to paste in place?

@KoryKramerNo, they both have their uses and both are possible in other applications like Adobe Illustrator.
