For instance, I had to place 57 pierblocks in a non-grid pattern. I had to hit 'duplicate' cmd for every one & re-select the start point every time. It would have gone much faster if I could have selected the master once, then every time I clicked a copy would be inserted.
I realize symbol placement behaves this way, but in this case, my insertion point wouldn't have worked. Symbols weren't an option.
Apologies if this already exists. I checked the manual & didn't see anything on it.

The only workaround for the moment is to create a symbol and place the symbol - which can be done in the manner you describe.
