Copying and pasting images between pages

  2. If you want to paste the image on the same page, press Ctrl+V (Windows) or Cmd+V (Mac).
  3. If you want to paste the image on another page, browse to that page and then press Ctrl+V (Windows) or Cmd+V (Mac).
  4. The image will be pasted and you’ll be able to position it as desired.
