I am trying to copy some items in my drawing but i can not past anything in this specific drawing, i turned on all layer but didn't work!
I wonder if there is a n option in Cad that Locks the paste option?!! or what the problem can be?!
Do you get an error message or prompt?
Can you cut/paste within this one problem file? or are you trying to cut/paste between files?
Is the file from another firm or user, someone using either 2013 or a "vertical" like AutoCAD Architecture or Civil or MEP?
thank you for your respond
I am not getting any error message, the copy commend works fine in the drawing but when I copy with the clipboard it doesn't work within the file!
I am trying to copy and past between 2 different drawing , if I copy the object from the source file to any other drawing it works fine, but I can not past any thing in this specific drawing!!
No, not COPY command: In the problem file only, can you COPY/PASTE in it? grab content from one side, copy to clipboard, then paste it elsewhere.
Another test: in the source file, draw a line. Copy it to the Clipboard. Go to the Destination/problem file, PASTE that line in. Anything?
Try fixing the destination file: RECOVER or AUDIT commands, followed by PURGE then SAVE.
COPYCLIP, COPYBASE & PASTECLIP are the clipboard commands...
I was just upgraded to ACAD 13 LT. With 12 I was able to copy an item to the clipboard and then paste it to a different drawing. This was different than the previous version, but I adapted. Now with 13, I have done the same command sequence, the image is selected, copy to clipboard with basepoint, and then when I switch to the new drawing, paste is not a highlighted option. Is there a setting that is included in the install that I need to change?
Hi, how are you trying to copy to clipboard? I was having problems and finally figured out that Ctrl Shift C and Ctrl Shift V were the easiest way to copy between drawings with base point. If you don't need the base point then Ctrl C and Ctrl V work. I use 2013lt and I don't have any special settings.
this the error that im getting now!
Substituting [simplex.shx] for [MSURVEY.SHX].
i figure at that there is a missing file and when I attached that it worked fine
Thank you all
