Join Jim LaPier for an in-depth discussion in this video Paste improvements, part of AutoCAD for Mac 2016 New Features.
- The paste tool has had some welcome improvements…in AutoCAD for Mac 2016.…Two of these in particular are quite useful:…Past as Block and Paste Original.…With Past as Block, I can select…the separate geometry that I have here.…Navigate up to Edit, and Copy.…I can navigate to a brand new DWG file,…and go to Edit, and Paste as Block.…
Here the new geometry is inserted as a new block.…This makes it easier to select it,…rotate the objects,…and move them into position.…I can then explode them,…and work with them as I normally would.…The other option is Past to Original Coordinates.…Since I already have the objects copied to my clipboard,…I'll go ahead and choose this option.…And we can see that the objects were copied…to the original location in relation to the origin point.…
Using this Past as Original, the objects are…also brought over as the same individual entities…as they were in the original drawing.…Please keep in mind that the Copy tool,…found here under Edit, is different…than the Copy tool found here under Modify.…
