    Disabling 'Paste Remembers Layers' in the Layers panel’s flyout menu solved the problem with pasting in place into a selected layer, therefore a specialized hotkey to the layer isolation is no longer required for the user.

    If you still need this hotkey — please comment.

    It also solves the problem with pasting from outside AI - when I use Paste in place now, the picture from outside is placed in the selected layer. JIPPI! :-)

    BRAVO! IT WORKS!! Egor, you solved it! Thank you, thank you, thank you!! I have never looked at that function, because I never understood what it meant...it's not always easy to use AI in english, because it's not my first language, and some of the expressions seems quite cryptical. But you really made my day, and pasting in the future will be much easier. :-)

    Hello again, Egor! My version is 27.7 (64 bit). And if you fix the 20% bug, I will not need the "Isolate hotkey" so much, I think. But sometimes it's very useful to isolate the layer. I design medals, and use a lot of layers/groups in one design. Sometimes it can be difficult to isolate obects because there are so many layers/objects above, and then it\s easier to select the layer and isolate. I also use a lot of masks, and then it can be difficult to select the right object to isolate by dobbel-click. But if it's very difficult to make, it's not essential. I can manage without... :-)

    Egor, please don't misunderstand my somewhat harsh comments, I love the Adobe products, and are really dependent on them on daily basis. I really appreciate the continuously development with a lot of new, very intelligent features. But the apps are really big, complicated animals, sometimes with their own will, and can be quite annoying and frustrating when they don't behave... :-)

    Egor, that's correct - when I use paste in place, even if I select another layer, the object will be pasted in the original layer, above the original shape.. I think it changed some years ago with a new version, and I remember thinking this was rather stupid, changing a well-functioning command/short-cut. But I have been in the business since 1996, and have experienced a lot of stupid new ideas and upgrades, especially changes of nice short-cuts I have been using for years. So I didn't think of this change as a bug. But I'm using a PC, not a Mac, could this have anything to do with it? I have experienced Adobe doesn't always care so much about us PC/Android-people, as you care about Apple-users...? ;-) But I'm very grateful for your interest in this problem, Egor - thank you very much :-) I hoper you figure it out, in one way or another.

    Hello Egor, and thank you for answering me! But it doesn't solve my request. I made a short-cut the way you describe, but it works only on objects, not on layers. Some years ago "Paste in place" worked like this: I chose the layer I wanted to paste into, used the shift-ctrl-v-command, and the object were placed where I wanted it.
    Today, when I paste in place, the object is placed in the original layer, above the original objects. To get the new objects to an new layer, I have to either drag them into the new layer (I use a lot of different layers in my work, and it's quite annoying), or I use the isolate layer command. But the short-cut you made me make, doesn't work on layers, only objects - so I still need my Isolate layer-short-cut/button :-)

    The 'Paste Remembers Layers' option in the Layers panel’s flyout menu regulates this behavior. When it is checked — Illustrator will honor the original layer of a copied artwork and paste it in the same layer, ignoring the selection of a layer.

    However, if disabling this option does not help — please comment.
