Copy Reference (from data shortcut) in the current drawing.

Copy Reference (from data shortcut) in the current drawing.

A reference style (from a Referece Template) has an option to break the link and copy/paste  that style in the same drawing.


It would be interesting the same for Data Shortcuts, so if we add a reference, we can break that link and that object would belong to the current drawing from now.


Yes, maybe we can copy/paste the object between the drawing files but the idea is retaining the ObjectID between the reference object ( a surface for example) and the new object.


I know that AutoCAD API has a way to retain the ObjectID and associate it to a new object if we remove the old object.





Maybe I'm misunderstanding, but does Promote do what you wanted?



You are right.
