There's a plug in called Multipaste where when you copy an object and go to edit, an additonal option is 'Multipaste'.
This allows you to quickly paste the same object in the same place on a selection of pages that you specify.
This doesn't work anymore, so it would be great if it were a feature of ID.
I know you can put something on master page, but this doesn't work for the pasteboard, and you then have to go through each page and command click to make it editable.
Sometimes I just want to paste exactly the same object on a selection of pages in exactly the same place, quickly, that's immediately editable and I don't want it to affect the master pages I've set up.
