To copy objects within a drawing, create a selection set and specify a start point and an endpoint for the copy. These points are called the base point and the second point of displacement, respectively, and can be anywhere within the drawing.

  2. Select the objects to copy, and press ENTER.
  3. Specify the base point (1).
  4. Specify the second point of displacement (2).

Command line COPY
Shortcut menu Select the objects to copy, right-click in the drawing area, and choose Copy Selection.

To copy a selection set multiple times

  1. From the Modify menu, choose Copy.
  2. Select the objects to copy, and press ENTER.
  3. Enter m (Multiple).
  4. Specify the base point.
  5. Specify the second point of displacement.
  6. Specify the next point of displacement. Continue inserting copies, or press ENTER to end the command.

Command line COPY
