Dermot Posted January 20, 2020 Share Posted January 20, 2020 The Copy and Paste in Place tool has been changed for X12. The Copy and Paste in Place tool that appeared on your main Edit toolbar in X11 has been removed and replaced by the Paste Hold Position tool that will now appear on the copy sub-mode toolbar. Simply hit the Copy/Paste tool and then hit the Paste Hold Position tool to get the same behavior in X12. The new method changes this to a two step process but makes it harder for people to accidentally make duplicate objects right on top of each other. There are a number of other ways to make a duplicate of an object: 1. You can use hotkeys to copy (Ctrl+C) and then paste hold position (Ctrl+Alt+V). 2. You can find the Copy and Paste In Place tool in the main Edit menu. 3. You can customize your toolbars and/or hotkeys to use the Copy and Paste in Place tool. 4. You can use the drag/copy method. Select an object, hit the Copy/Paste tool, drag the new copy out using the center handle on the object. 5. You can use the Transform/Replicate Object dialog to make one or more copies that are in the same location as the original object. In my opinion, the drag/copy method is the best choice to use when you want to make a copy of an object and don't actually want it in the same location. Creating duplicate architectural objects in the same location is a good way to confuse the program and cause problems. Especially with architectural objects like cabinets, windows, doors, electrical object, and walls. The picture below shows copy sub-mode toolbar and the drag/copy handle which will both appear when you use the Copy/Paste tool: 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
