Importing CAD Details

Recommended Posts

How do you import CAD details from one plan file to another plan file and not have them associate themselves with the plan they were exported from?
These CAD details are in a plan, not in the user library.

I suppose I could open the detail, then save it to the library, but I was hoping I could import them directly from one plan to another.

 

Thanks in advance,

I have a few hundred of them to move from one plan to another.  Do you mean one by one or can I do a group copy and paste?

My system will no allow me to highlight more than one cad detail at a time.

Do you use all in every plan?

 

You might create a new Template Plan with them included.

I have a layout with details pertinent to the job at hand. I'm able to upgrade as needed on the project at hand.

Eric gave good advice for future projects.  For the current project, you can always just send to layout from your other plan if you want too.  Just Save As and name it something like Temporary Detail Warehouse and send from that plan.
