Photoshop: Problem Duplicating layer folders and pasting to new artboard

With the new artboard feature if i duplicate a folder in one artboard and paste it a another the layer positions don't stay relative to their placement before duplication and movement.

I too have this problem. It's kinda annoying, specially when I have dozens of layers and need to go to the top of the artboard to drag the layer down again.

I agree 200% Adobe please resolve this. I don't even want to use artboards anymore, because of this.

Would love something like this, which is also akin to "Edit > Paste on All Artboards" in Illustrator.

Sounds like this issue: http://feedback.photoshop.com/photosh... Which should be fixed in an upcoming update.

Ken, can you tell me more about what you are experiencing? Would like to get a reproducible case for debugging. Can you provide more details to describe the error you're seeing? We may have a fix for this ready, but I want to be sure I'm understanding you correctly first.

Hey Joel,

I'll try my best. It might be easier to do a Skype call but I'll try to describe the issue.

1. Create an art-board (Artboard 1) and place or create visual assets in the artboard.
2. Create a new blank art-board (Artboard 2) in the same document.
3. Group a set of assets in artboard 1 > duplicate group > Move duplicated group folder to Artboard 2.

Issue:
The assets position are not staying in place.

Hi Ken,

I'm not able to reproduce this issue. When I follow these steps, I get the duplicated assets in the right spot in the new artboard. Are you still seeing this issue? If so, I'd like to schedule some time to see it happen live.

Let me know if that would work-

Thanks!

I have the same issue as ken under basically the same scenario. I can consistently get it to happen with these steps:

- In the layer panel, Drag layer group that is not in an art board into an art board.
- All layers are now aligned centered to each other (this could be vertically or horizontally. it's different every time)

PS version: 2015.0.1 (20150722.r.168)

I'm attaching an image to show the issue.

I think I found the way this error works. I have an artboard (A) and I duplicate it (by dragging the artboard's name) creating another artboard (B). When I  duplicate (cmd+J) a group from artboard (B), it's being pasted to the first, parent artboard (A) from which I created the other one. It's like photoshop confusing the unique ID of a duplicated artboard with it's source artboard.  This issue does not happen when I duplicate a group from the source artboard (A). It does not happen also, when I duplicate a group from an artboard created with the plus (+) icon. 
I hope this helped. :)
