Clipboard Manager

Clipboard Manager

Autodesk, Inc.

Digitally signed app




The Clipboard Manager plugin can be used with AutoCAD® to manage multiple clipboard entries, storing and renaming them for later use. It's great for moving different sets of content between various open drawings or for creating repeated copies of geometry without using blocks.

This plugin was first published as an ADN Plugin of the Month. The plugin has been provided with the complete source code needed to build the application, with the intention of encouraging users of Autodesk software to use programming to tailor the products they use to their specific business needs.


More information regarding this plugin can also be found on Kean Walmsley's blog about AutoCAD programming, Through the Interface.

  • functionality question
    justin sigalos | May 25, 2016

    Does this clipboard save things you've copied even after you've exited/reopened the autocad program?

    Sandeep Kumar (Publisher) | May 30, 2016

    It doesn't save copied objects once you close the AutoCAD.

    Thank you very much! This is the most usefull addon for autocad. I think this tool should attach for the next AutoCAD ver. as build-in. Thank you again.

    Hi Matt, Now, it is updated for 2017

  • Very good tool
    Robert Wilson | January 29, 2016 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Just started to use this today, it will be used every day! I to would like to request that it would save clips from session to session. Then it would get 5 stars

  • Great tool. could use some work
    Jason Moore | May 14, 2015 Verified Download (What's this?)

    really needs to save the files between sessions like the original one did.

    Sandeep Kumar (Publisher) | May 15, 2015

    Thanks for the suggestion, we will consider this suggestion during our next enhancement effort.

  • Needs More Functionality
    Archie Dodge | May 05, 2015 Verified Download (What's this?)

    This would easily be a 5 star if I could pin certain clips that would persist though session changes. If it were able to WBLOCK pinned clips so that it could call them when needed, this would be a masterpiece.

    Richard Kent | June 22, 2016

    You can right click and export to drawing, now you have that clip as a separate drawing, same as WBLOCK.

    Every now and then the preview window slider will more down to obscure the preview window. If you copy something to the clipboard while it's in this state, an error occurs.

    Kenth Augustsson | March 06, 2014 Verified Download (What's this?)

    Curios why this isn't part of AutoCAD as standard. Can't imagine to be without it.
