Modifying entities - Copying entities

Copying entities within a drawing

You can duplicate entities within the current drawing. The default method is to create a selection set and then specify a starting point, or base point, and an endpoint, or displacement point, for the copy. You can also make multiple copies or copy the selection set to a location you specify, using a direction vector.

To copy a selection set
  1. Do one of the following:
  2. Choose Modify > Copy.
  3. On the Modify toolbar, click the Copy Object tool (
  4. ).
  • Type copy and then press Enter.
  • Select the entities, and then press Enter.
  • Specify the base point.
  • Specify the insertion point.
  • Continue specifying insertion points to place additional copies or press Enter to complete the command.
  • To complete the command, press Enter.
  •  

     

     

    To make a single copy of an entity, select the
    entity to copy (A), base point (B), and then
    displacement point (C).

     

    Result.

     

     

     

    To make multiple copies of an entity, select the entity to copy ( A ), specify the base point ( B ), and then specify the displacement points ( C , D , and E ).

  • NOTE The COPYMODE system variable controls whether you are prompted for multiple copies.
