Did You Know… IDW Copy & Paste

Hello!

Short and sweet today.  I’m trying to get back into the habit of writing more posts.  I’ve been pretty bad at keeping this up lately.  I guess I let life get in the way of the truly important things.  😉

I’m going to try to do some of these short “Did You Know” type posts from time to time.  This one is a topic that I literally just demonstrated for someone in my department.  It’s quick, it’s easy and it just might save you some time.

In the Autodesk Inventor drawing environment, did you know that it is easy to combine the pages of separate drawing files into one?  Let’s say you have been creating a bunch of drawings for a project.  You have them all started, and saved… but nothing has been checked into the Vault (if you use it), or approved for release by engineering or whatever your procedure is.  Suddenly you realize that all of these drawings have something in common, and it would be much easier for production if the drawings were all released as a package.

Did you know, that this is as simple as Copy (ctrl-c) and Paste (ctrl-v)?  That’s right.  Open both the source and destination drawing files.  From the source, place your mouse anywhere on the sheet you want to move, right click and select Copy.  Then, in the destination drawing, right click in the browser on the left and select Paste.  the sheet from the source drawing is now added to the destination.  Yup.  It’s really that simple.

Now you’re going to all try this, aren’t you!

Enjoy!

    Recently attempted 3ds Max for hose design. I need the hose length to be fixed. Have you found a way to fix the length?

      Hi Troy, thanks for the follow!

      At this time there is still no method in place for fixed hose lengths. I know there are ideas in the forums, and there have been discussions on it as a possible enhancement, so keep watching the “what’s new” on future releases. Maybe some day it will be a reality.
