Example usage of smart copy and paste

With smart copy & smart paste macros you can copy and paste objects between pages or even documents. That is done with retaining of information related to the original layer and z-order position of being copied object. After the objects will be pasted, its z-order information will be restored. If a layer from which object was copied doesn't exist in the target document, then it is automatically created.
