I am trying to copy paste a sketch from one part to another part.
When I try to paste the sketch to the second part where I select one plan to do so, it gives me this error message: "the item on the clipboard can not be pasted here"
On the part that you are pasting TO, you need to select a face (or plane) to paste the sketch onto.
Another question: is it a 3D sketch?
My surface is not a plane on the second part. How to do in this case?
Well, this is how I would do it:
FROM part (with sketch to be copied/pasted circled):
On the TO part, create an offset plane from something (in my case I used the Top Plane):
Then paste the sketch onto the plane that you have created:
Then use the "Wrap" function to wrap it onto the curved surface:
Would this work for you?
You can't take a planar sketch and paste it onto a non-planar surface.
This is how my surface looks like. This is a bent board, this is not a cylinder. I need to create 8-10 holes going trough to create some insert area and screw going trough but I don't success to make them.
Can you use the hole wizard to create the holes?
I think that you can define the holes with the hole wizard and then just place the points on your surface (edit: this would create a 3D sketch).
Then dimension them appropriately.
no beacuase my surface is not flat
You don't need to have a flat surface to use the hole wizard. See example below:
Define your properties for the hole in question.
Select the position tab and then select the curved surface you want to put the hole on.
Place the hole, then you can edit the sketch to get its placement correct.
You can even place more holes by just adding more points to the sketch and constraining them.
Edit: I even tried it on a part that I created with a hand drawn spline (just in case)
This is what I try to do but when I select the face where I want to place the hole, the solid doesn't change color to indicate it is selected.
Then another alternative might be to create a plane, sketch a circle on the plane and then "wrap" the sketch onto the surface (using the "deboss" selection in the wrap command). Try that.
It seems I am able to place certains type of hole but not all. For example if I try to place a slot, it doesn't work , but if I try to place Countersink hole, then it works... very strange. Any idea why ?

Probably because the slots need to have a flat surface. I am guessing that there is no code to "wrap" the sketch profile of the slot onto the surface.
The other thing (that I just thought of) is that holes are really just a quick revolve (if you look at both sketches in a hole wizard feature you will see what I mean), while a slot is something more involved. This is probably why.
This is very strange because when I use the Features with Extruded Cut going trough all my surfaces, it makes a hole but which doesn't look to be opened on both side. Still I have extended the extrusion on both side of the surface fully. I don't undestand why.
I am wondering if you have a surface body on the other side of the part. The extrude won't cut through that unless you tell it to.
This part has been created by surface then thicken in both direction.
On the part you want to copy the sketch to, start a sketch.
Edit the sketch on the part you want to copy from.
Tile you viewports...
Now, box in the FROM geometry
Hold the CTRL key.
Drag and drop in the TO window
the problem I have is the part I want to make hole on is not surface but curvated surface
If that is the case then go "old school" create the tool solid and then subtract the volume.
