Join Jim LaPier for an in-depth discussion in this video Copy, part of AutoCAD for Mac 2015 Essential Training.
- Copy works in a similar vein as move,…but obviously keeps the original objects intact.…I'm gonna select Copy from the tool sets here,…select my object and press return…to let AutoCAD know I'm done selecting objects.…I'll specify my base point, just clicking…out here in space, and then specify…my second point here.…Notice that AutoCAD keeps me in the copy command…and will do so until I press return…or escape on my keyboard.…One thing to note is when typing in relative…or polar coordinates, the original base point…remains the base point for the length of the command.…
So if I wanna copy this line over three times…with a unit of two between each copy,…I'll select my Copy command, select my objects,…press return.…I'm gonna pick the base of the line here…and then type @ 2, angle 0 for my first copy.…For my second copy, I want another two units to the right,…but if I were to type in @ 2, angle 0 again,…I would get a line on top of the previous line.…That is because the base point I specified…originally is still the base point.…
