Laboratory of Complex Technologies
Extended variant of copy creation for the part of the drawing.

General Usage Instructions

Upon issuing the command syntax SM_COPYEX at the Autodesk® AutoCAD® command-line, the user is prompted to select a closed contour. At this prompt, the user also has the option to create a contour, or configure the plugin's settings. If the 'Create' option is chosen, the user is prompted to enter the content for the new closed contour. If the 'Options' option is chosen, the user is presented with a dialog interface. Here the user can activate checkboxes for object types, that have to be copied and/or deactivate object types that have to be ignored. Also, the user can set 'Trim' possibility for selected objects and set flags for rotation/scaling/copying to clipboard if it is necessary. After contour is selected/created the plugin will prepare a copy of the entities inside the contour. It may take a time (processing time depends on objects quantity and hardware). After this, the user will be prompted to pick an insert point for newly created copy (and rotate/scale prompts, if these flags were selected).

If 'to Clipboard' flag is activated, a copy will be placed to the clipboard and will be deleted from the current drawing. Notifying will be printed at command prompt window for this case.

Note: demonstration version of the plugin works on first 10 objects of a selection set. The rest of a selection set is ignored. The full version of current plugin will work on the all of the objects of a selection set.
