Retain theme styles when copying and pasting objects between layouts

How to retain theme styles when copying and pasting objects between layouts?

 

I am finding even un-grouped objects pasted onto another layout do not retain their style link. In a very un-intuitive fashion you have to save changes to a theme once you paste styled-objects to another layout. Once you paste the styled object to the new layout it looses its connection to the style and has to be re-attached to the style.

 

Also, you cannot see a linked style when an object is a single object button. This would be very useful instead of having to break the button link to inspect it then re-link the script.

 

PS: Am I the only one who needed a Paste in Place command about 20 years ago?

PPS: Layers with animation, when are we going to be able to develop modern UI applications?
