When you add an InDesign object or group to a CC library, its location on the page is recorded.
You can use this location information later on, to place the library item at the same position.
To do this, drag the item out of the CC Library. You’ll see the familiar loaded place cursor with a preview of the item.
Then hold down Option/Alt. You’ll see your cursor change to indicate the position information of the item will be used.
Click anywhere on the page, and the new object (or group) will be placed at the same X and Y coordinates as the original.
