Shortcut to get multiple models to “spawn” in the same area of a scene?

Hello,
I was creating a scene with lots of beetles and it’s not easy to move them from 0,0,0 to the part of the scene I want them at. Is there a way to change where they spawn at, or duplicate them, or anything?

In DS4.5+ you can create Instances or Geometry Shells.  You can also Ctrl-click-drag from the library to the position in the viewport you want items to be placed.

It’s ALT click Drag on a Win PC. You will get a Red and Yellow target where it will load, It only loads to X and Z so if under your prop or set you will need to move it in the Y position also.
