About Copying Objects

Use coordinates, grid snap, object snaps, and other tools to copy objects with precision.

You can also use grips to move and copy objects quickly.

Specify Distance with Two Points

Copy an object using the distance and direction specified by a base point followed
by a second point. In this example, you copy the block representing an electronic
component. Select the original object to be copied. Specify the base point for the
move (1) followed by a second point (2). The object is copied the distance and direction
of point 1 to point 2.

Specify Distance with Relative Coordinates

Copy an object using a relative distance by entering coordinate values for the first
point and pressing Enter for the second point. The coordinate values are used as a
relative displacement rather than the location of a base point.


Do not include an @ sign as you normally would for relative coordinates, because relative
coordinates are expected.

To copy objects a specified distance, you can also use direct distance entry with
Ortho mode and polar tracking.

Create Multiple Copies

With COPY, you can create multiple copies from the specified selection set and base
point. The options include the following:

  • Create copies at specified locations or displacements
  • Automatically space a specified number of copies in a linear pattern.

Move and Copy Objects by Dragging

You can also select objects and drag them to a new location using the left mouse
button over one of the selected objects; press Ctrl to make a copy. Using this method,
you can drag objects between open drawings and other applications.

If you drag with the right mouse button instead of the left, a shortcut menu is displayed
after you drag the objects. The menu options include Move Here, Copy Here, Paste as
Block, and Cancel.
