    Copy and paste drawing views and bom.

    Brent Trotter

      is it possible to copy and paste drawing views and boms from one sheet to another?

       

      Seems like i cannot do it for some reason.

          Copying and Pasting Views

          You can cut, copy, and paste drawing views within a drawing, from one sheet to another in the same drawing, and from one drawing document to another.

          Model views are usually the most useful to copy. You can modify them to display any view orientation.

          You can also drag views from sheet to sheet within a drawing (but not to another drawing document).

          To perform these operations on multiple views at once, hold down the Ctrl key as you select the views.

          NOTE: To copy a Detail or Section View from one drawing to another, you must also copy the parent view. You can either copy the parent view first, or you can copy both the parent and the Detail or Section View at the same time.

          To cut/copy/paste a drawing view:

          1.   Select the view either on the sheet or in the FeatureManager design tree. 
          2. Click Cut art\STD-cut.gif or Copy art\STD-copy.gif on the Standard toolbar, or click Edit, Cut or Copy.

          3. Change to the target sheet or drawing document, click where you want to paste the view, and click Paste art\STD-past.gif on the Standard toolbar or click Edit, Paste.

          To move or copy views by dragging:

          In the FeatureManager design tree:

            •   To move the view, drag the drawing view icon and drop it on the target sheet icon (the pointer changes to when it is over the sheet icon). 
            • To copy the view, hold down Ctrl, then drag the drawing view icon and drop it on the target sheet icon (the pointer changes to when it is over the sheet icon).

            Also note that if you copy an entire sheet, the table (as well as any model views, etc.) will come along for the ride.  I do not believe that there is a link between the two tables (For general tables anyway) when you do it this way but it is an option.

             

            Probably not a best practice; I find it comes in handy when you have an identical table needed on multiple pages without going through the trouble of linking to an external excel file.
