Clipboard ManagerWin32 and 64, English
General Usage Instructions
Once loaded, the CLIPBOARD command can be used to display the Clipboard Manager palette. The CLIPBOARD command is also added to a panel in the Plug-Ins tab on the AutoCAD Ribbon Bar. When using Ctrl-C (or COPYCLIP) inside AutoCAD, this palette will display each new set of AutoCAD objects added to the clipboard for later use. Each new item is assigned a name automatically, which can be changed using the right-click menu, F2 or double-clicking on the name. It also shows the time at which the item was added as well as a preview of the contents. The right-click menu also allows each clipboard item to be inserted, whether as standard geometry or a block at a selected point, or at the geometry's original location (if pasting objects between drawings).
The installer that ran when you downloaded this plug-in from AutoCAD Exchange has already installed the plug-in. You may need to restart AutoCAD to activate the plug-in. To uninstall this plug-in, simply rerun the installer by downloading it again from Exchange, and select the 'Uninstall' button, or you can uninstall it from 'Control Panel\Programs\Programs and Features' (Windows 7) or Add/Remove Programs (Windows XP), just as you would uninstall any other application from your system. The panel on the Plug-ins tab will not be removed until AutoCAD is restarted.
This plug-in was written by Mark Dubbelaar, and edited by Kean Walmsley, for publishing on his blog. It became a Plugin of the Month on Autodesk Labs. ADN Plugins of the Month are provided with full source code that has been installed with this plug-in. While the code is not needed to make use of the plug-in, it will be useful should you want to understand how the plug-in works or to extend its functionality to meet your specific needs. Many thanks to Mark for generously providing this very useful plug-in.
"Paste to Original Coordinates" will only work when pasting between AutoCAD drawings: this is as designed and is AutoCAD's standard behavior.
