    Draftsight 2017 Copy Error

    Keith Boyce

      Windows 7 Professional

      Service Pack 1

      i7-5600 @2.6Ghz 64bit

      16GB Ram

       

      The Copy to Clipboard command in Draftsight 2017 is not working for me after upgrading from 2016. When I select a line and press cntrl-c the command window reads the following:

      _CLIPBOARDCOPY

      1 found

      <<Error>>

       

      I get the same result If I use the copy@ command. but if I use the modify>copy command no error is generated and it works as expected. This leads me to believe there is some kind of corruption in the clipboard.

       

      So far I have tried error-checking the drawing, cleaning the drawing, Uninstalling Reinstalling, Uninstalling and deleting temp and program files then reinstalling. Non of these solutions have worked. Any Help would be appreciated.

       

      UPDATE: After playing around with the software a new drawing works correctly. The error only happens with our existing drawings which are in the R2013 DWG format. We uses sheets for each page of a schematic. The copy and paste does not work on the model or any of the sheets. If I save a sheet as R14 Drawing DWG I can then Copy items again from the R14 Drawing.

       

      UPDATE: 3/20/2017: I have tried everything and it seems that it is affecting more then just my computer. What changed between 2016 and 2017 that would cause this to occur?
