Paper by FiftyThree is one of the most approachable sketching apps for iOS, and recent versions have made it a viable note-taking app as well. While Paper has always been free and previously included in-app purchases, FiftyThree added an optional subscription patronage system last year. Now Paper is introducing a new ‘Copy & Paste’ feature that will only be available for subscribers.

Copy and paste in Paper lets you select elements in one illustration and easily apply them to another illustration without much effort. The feature automatically works with the Cut Tool which lets you make freeform selections.

Pasting is done with a new Paste button that appears on the tool tray. From here you can drag and drop the pasted content anywhere on the new illustration.
