Positions of objects and selections copied from libraries

Positions of objects and selections copied from libraries


Using PI Pro 10: In earlier versions, objects and selections copied to an object library and then copied back to the same image or one of the same dimensions put the object or selection in the same place at the same size as it was. The manual says that objects should still work that way; but I find that, regardless of what I do, objects are inserted at the upper left, even to the very same image from where they were created, and selections are stretched to the boundaries of the image in whichever axis reaches the edges first.

There's an intriguing item in the thumbnail menu of the library where there's a selection between "Keep original size," "Fit mask and keep aspect ratio" and "Fit mask" but those choices are always grayed out and I haven't been able to find out where they are enabled, or if they apply to this problem or not.

Can anyone offer some guidance here? Many thanks.
