The Show Options checkbox inside the Place dialog box is sticky — that is, if you turn it on, it remains on each time you place until you turn it off. However, instead of turning on and off the checkbox, hold down the Shift key when you click the Open button. The Shift key forces the Options dialog box to open whether or not the checkbox is on.

  1. Thank you so much for this tip! That dialog box can be super annoying, especially when you forget to turn it off and place several images at the same time, you are just stuck clicking alot of boxes.
