Chapter 11. Advanced Geometry Editing > Windows Functionality in AutoCAD

Windows Functionality in AutoCAD

There are many advantages to opening several drawings in a session of AutoCAD, including two that relate to blocks. Along with the introduction of the Multiple Document Editor (MDE), AutoCAD 2000 also introduces two new features that take advantage of multiple open drawings. These new features allow you to either cut and paste, or drag and drop objects from one drawing to another. Additionally, you are given the option to insert the objects as a block.

Copying with the Clipboard

To copy using the clipboard, choose Copy from the Edit pull-down menu. This will copy selected objects to the clipboard. Choose Copy Link to copy the current view to the clipboard. Copy Link copies all objects in the drawing and preserves the current view of the drawing. As an alternative, you can use the CUT command to copy objects to the clipboard and remove them from the drawing.
