Copying between drawings
You can use the Clipboard to cut or copy entities from one drawing to another. Cutting removes the selected entities from a drawing and stores them on the Clipboard. Copying duplicates the selected entities from a drawing and places them on the Clipboard.
To cut entities to the Clipboard
Select the entities you want to cut.
- Choose Edit > Cut.
- On the Standard toolbar, click the Cut tool ().
- Type cutclip and then press Enter.
To copy entities to the Clipboard
Select the entities you want to copy.
- Choose Edit > Copy.
- On the Standard toolbar, click the Copy tool ().
- Type copyclip and then press Enter.
Anything that you can copy to the Clipboard can be pasted into a drawing. The
format in which the program adds the Clipboard contents to the drawing depends
on the type of information in the Clipboard. For example, if you copy progeCAD
drawing entities to the Clipboard, the program pastes them into the drawing
as progeCAD entities. If you copy items to the Clipboard from other programs,
they are pasted into the current drawing as embedded ActiveX® objects.
