Hi, I am wondering if I have missed something here!

I try to copy and paste a small section of piping and instrumentation, with or without "copy with base point"

When I paste the selection it invariable seems to end up misaligned with the grid so I cannot connect to the various symbols and as it is a fraction of a grid square out of position I cannot move it back onto the grid!

Having said that now when i try the same no mater what I do when I paste I get a small text box that says "copy" in red letters!

Hmm could this be an osnap issue or grid? If you turn osnaps / snap to grid
off do you see this offsetting?
