I am transferring objects between two SSIS packages using Copy-Paste. When I paste the objects, they are put wayyyyy far out right and to the bottom and I have to spend time moving them back to where they should be. If I paste in a For-Each or Sequence container, the container gets stretched out right and bottom. Is there a way for me to avoid this pain and have SSIS paste where I want it to go?
I found it!! If you copy paste the first time, they go to the far bottom-right. Just click somewhere on the control flow other than those objects, then select them and copy-paste them again. Now they are pasted very close to the original control objects.
I cant test this in 2008 but my 2005 doesnt do this. I copy items from a data flow in package1 and paste into package2 without great issues. They are not aligned the same but they are not out of view. I can use Ctrl + A to select them all and then choose Format | Auto Layout and align them is necessary.
