Copy and past to all artboards at onceOctober 10, 2017 at 9:59pm (Edited 1 year ago)
I would like to know if it's possible to copy an element and past it on all artboards at once.
Sound like a stupid question but I tried and searched how I could do it and couldn't figure it out. The only thing I found is this plugin: http://sketchapp.rocks/plugins/copy-2-all/
I'm suprised that you can't do it without any plugin, just using the native Sketch foncitonnalities.

Things like size of artboard? If the artboard is too small does it get clipped or pasted above artboard. Where does it past (x,y)? Where does it paste in terms of layer order? How do you access this command (dropdown menu, keyboard shortcut, etc.) Those are just a few I can think of. I mean it can all be solved for but I haven't seen this type of functionality as default in any other app. :)
The plugin that I posted on my first message allows to do it but I was surprised there is no way to do it only with Sketch. Would be logical for the artboards of the same size. If you select all youe artboards and you past an element, it will past it only on the last artboard you selected.

“I haven't seen this type of functionality as default in any other app” This is a default and useful functionality in Adobe lllustrator as well as Indesing. Same artboard size – it pastes to the same place logically on top of the previous layers. If the artboard sizes differ then it produces unexpected results of course.

I made a plugin called Lazyboards that has a "Duplicate to all" and "Duplicate to selected" options... This might help... I'm working on the Paste versions of these. -> https://github.com/lazybearcreations/sketch-lazyboards/releases
