Paste Here (where my mouse pointer is) option
Currently AdobeXD has an useful way to copy paste keeping the pasted object aligned with the original object position or pasting it in the same place relative to the original artboard.
But what is missing is a way to paste an element exactly where the mouse pointer is. Usually if I need an element somewhere in an artboard, the paste option makes it appear somewhere else, usually very far (and sometimes hidden behind other elements).
A "Paste Here" (where my mouse pointer is when I right click) option is necessary to be able to pinpoint the exact location where to paste. Also it should use the z-position of the top graphic element in such very point as a base to drop the new object, positioning it just above the object I right-clicked on (or where the mouse pointer is when I press the "paste-here" key combination).
Without this I waste too much time dragging things pasted in the wrong places.
This additional option should allow the user a choice between paste-aligned or paste-here.
You have additions to a design that need to be on all (or a selected range) of artboards. A "paste on all artboards" and/or a "paste on focused artboards" would be useful here.

Would really like to see implementation of "paste behind" and "paste in front".
Those shortcuts in Illustrator are invaluable, and they are more intuitive than layers and the arrange-tools.

Don't know if I should file this as a bug or feature.
When I cut a portion of text from a body of text I expect it to paste into an independent textbox when i hit Cmd + V.
This doesn't happen currently.
Additional features associated with this would be:
- 'Paste in Place' or 'Paste Forward' - which XD does by default.
- 'Paste Behind'
- 'Paste Inside'
- 'Paste In All Artboards
Given all the ways designers can paste these days why don't we create a paste submenu. 2016, lets make it happen!
