Change Illustrator paste offset distance to closer to cursor inside of viewing area
Illustrator often pastes objects randomly outside of my viewing area, and I have to zoom out and scroll over to get it. I want to change the offset distance so it pastes inside my view area, not outside of it. OR, make it paste near where the cursor is, not way off somewhere.

Herbie, what command do you use to paste?
Ctrl+V will just pastes in the middle of your viewport — all the time, no exclusions.
Paste in Front/back. on the other hand, paste using your current artboard’s coordinates, so it matters which one is active. For example, if you copy stuff form the big artboard and paste it on the smaller one — it will result the copy to show up beyond the smaller one and maybe outside you current view.
