      Hi are you sure the paste is truly random? In my experience, Max pastes close to the point where the cursor was at the point of 'copy' - but this is just my observation.

      If you use the key command for Paste, it pastes where the objects were originally, because they have the patching_rect attributes in them. Repeated Paste will drop them objects down and to the right just like Duplicate does.
      Either way, if you right-click with the mouse for Paste, it pastes at the cursor, overriding the original patching_rect attributes.
      Interestingly, if you paste with the keyboard, then do some pastes with the mouse, then do more keyboard pastes, they "remember" the several mouse-pastes and include spaces in the "down-right" line...totally did not expect that!
