Solved_ copy paste from another drawing does not work – autodesk community

When I use copy or copy with base point and paste or paste to original coordinates in another drawing, nothing is being copied.

The isuue is dwg related. Modern desk lamp amazon It only happens when i paste to some of my dwg (usualy the most important ones…).

All the drawing files that are affected are in 2013 format, but if i save them to older version the problem persist.

What on earth could be wrong with DWG to prevent pasting from another drawing?!

I’ve solved my problem… Pc desktop themes windows xp free download So… Glorious studio desk workbench Copy-Paste did not work on one dwg, but it did on an other… Hp deskjet 1512 printer reviews So it has to be a database problem (I mean dwg as a database) or it must be Autocad, but as it does work on the other files it is not the Autocad…

I’ve done all the things one could imagine with my DWG and no, it still does not work…

Is my drawings geometry carrying any system variables with it?!

What I did was export all the system variables from drawing that does work (a new empty drawing) using expresstools/tools/System Variable Editor and applied them on the drawing that did not work.


I did not make analysis of exported variable lists, but I will when i get some time (I work 24/7 now for the third week…coffe, please) but I will.

as a workaround , you could use wblock the items you need to copy and paste .

you could wblock them to a local folder specified in your options paths.

then you can use a lisp to insert “new block” to another drawing .

make a pgp alias for this lisp , this can be as quick as copy paste

First you need to confirm the COPYCLIP took place: the problem may be the source file, not just the destination file.

Second, it appears you did not try -EXPORTTOAUTOCAD command, a great tool at removing AEC content that may be the culprit (assuming neither you or the file creators/recipients need them): aim for a 2007 format DWG file.

Not sure if anything has happened to this post but i got a reply stating…

I’m also interesting what sysvar did this solve/was the problem (and what settings), but

ATTENTION:exporting sysvars (using command SYSVDLG) exports double values only with that number of decimal-places defined in the _UNITS dialog ==> precision. Desk com portal Importing that truncated values then is risky!

As an example: if the variable DIMEXO is set to 0.625 (what it is by default for metric AutoCAD templates), and your precision is set to 2 decimal places the export writes DIMEXO 0.63. My computer on desktop windows 7 If you import now this SVF-file into another drawing this value ( 0.63) is imported, so it’s different/wrong in the destination drawing.

With double values of any length-options the error is not as big as if you export angular-values. Desktop wallpaper for windows xp free download 2012 Also therefor a sample:

If you have set ANGBASE to 90° (so having the north-direction as angle=0) the SYSVDLG exports this value in radiant (with a lot of decimal places that is 1,5707963….), limiting that now to 2 decimalplaces and reimporting that in another drawing makes the “0°-base” not any more at 90°, but at 89.95°. Desktop desk background That also might not seem to be that much, but at least all you draw based on that wrong ANGBASE will not fit into other drawings (not as exact as CAD has to work).

The most problem is ==> you don’t see it as long as you don’t interchange data with other drawings.

The second problem is, I only have mentioned 2 variables here … Front desk officer duties and responsibilities in hotel out of many in the SVF!

I hope I’t understandable, so be very, very carefull using that SVF for importing! (maybe removing the double values from the SVF before importing it might be an option).

To do the analysis, export variables from both of your dwg and compare them using word Compare text processor. Deskjet 3632 scan Look only for system variables (not precision or dimensional, they may be different for a reason).

PS: alfred.neswadba is right about precision set to lower values, so you should set the precision in both dwg to max value before exporting. Workplace desk ergonomics Sorry I did not mention that before.

>> you should set the precision in both dwg to max value before exporting

Even the maximum number of decimalplaces is not the full precission, especially for angular values!

That’s why I would remove the sysvars with double values from the SVF-file before importing it.

Don’t worry about that, if that really works then your idea might be great for a lot of questions here (so we are waiting for the sysvar that did the trick 😉
