Re: Copy paste sketch in idw files

If it's a sketch inside of an idw, then we don't need the other files to see that. Try just the idw alone as Sam suggested.

My file is pretty big, even when zipping only the idw it's twice the limit for this site.

 

My sketch includes the circle but I don't think that this is causing the problem.

I see that it's the sketch that is big, not the rest of the information on the idw. Because of that I'm unable to send you the file. It seem it does not like my copy from CAD, probably too much info carried from one program to the other.

When you copy from cad it gives you a load of junk. I would suggest not doing that if you can.

 

Well I am sorry we cold not help :smileysad: Autodesk may jump in and set up a ftp you can send to them..

Re: Copy paste sketch in idw files

Having a similar problem...created a sketch on sheet 1 of an idw, pasted a symbol. Then on sheet two I created a sketch and went to past a symbol from a sketch from sheet two of that same previous idw and paste is not an option...

 

Tried a ton of different combinations of copying and pasting but only that sheet 1 sketch has paste as a right click option.

Yea was reading though this hoping i would find a solution. Turns out inventor doesnt like to copy and paste hatches. Delete the hatch and then just Control + C then Control + V in your new drawing. Didnt work with the hatch but work after i deleted the sketch.
