Copy form controls and maintain layout

I remember that formerly I was able to copy a number of form controls from one form and transfer them to another form while maintaining the relative position of the form controls. However when I try to paste a number of form controls now, they all pile on top of each other in left-upper corner of the screen.

How can I paste form controls and maintain their relative position to eachother?


Have just tried this on Ubuntu 18.04 with LO v6.3.1.2 from TDF and see no problem.

Please provide your OS, specific LO version and where you installed LO from - Distro, PPA, TDF. Possibly a problem from source.
