You want to copy plants along with their labels around your drawing without the labels losing their association with the plants.
Want to copy just plants or another type of block? See our page on Copying Plants & Other Blocks: How To (and How Not To).
Yes, it is possible to copy plants and their associated labels around your drawing. Here are the ground rules:
Rule #1: Only use the COPYCLIP command to copy plants and labels.
To do so, type COPYCLIP in the Command line and press Enter. Select the objects you want to copy, then press Enter again when finished selecting.
To place the copied objects, use the PASTECLIP command. Type PASTECLIP in the Command line and press Enter. When prompted to specify an insertion point, click to paste the copied objects.
Rule #2: When using the COPYCLIP command to copy plants and labels, use the command on both the plant and its associated label at the same time. If you use COPYCLIP on plants and labels separately, they will lose their associations.
Rule #3: Do not use the AutoCAD COPY command to copy plants and labels. Whether you try this command on both the plant and label, or on one or the other, the plant and label will lose their associations.
