No "copytolayer" in AutoCAD 2013?

I was working in AutoCAD 2012 and just opened the drawing in version 2013.. The "copytolayer" does not exist as a command. It's weird because i searched online and it seems that it should be there. I have the educational version, but somehow i don't think that is the reason it's not showing up.

 

Any ideas?

Hi,

 

does it also not work if you start the command by typing it into the command-line?

 

Out of the help it should work, and tried also on my 2013-version ==> it works!

No, it doesn't exist, there is no icon for it, and it doesn't work if typed in the command line.

 

However, I found the solution here: http://forums.autodesk.com/t5/AutoCAD-for-Mac/copy-to-layer/td-p/2931712

 

This is really wierd, becuse it seems to be working fine with most folks.

 

Thank you anyway!

Hi,

Do you have AutoCAD on Mac?

If so then I guess "working fine with most folks" is valid for the Windows-users.
