Solid Edge 2d will not paste an object copied to clipboard

N/A

I'm having trouble pasting an element that I have copied to the clipboard. I believe
that I have successfully copied it onto the clipboard because the clipboard color
turned to yellow. However, it seems that following the "cut, copy or paste an element"
instructions does not have any effect when I try to paste the element. I went to
the Home Tab, Clipboard Group, clicked on the yellow clipboard icon that represents
the paste command, chose "paste" over "paste special" and clicked on the location
where I wanted to paste the element. However, nothing appeared on the drawing.
The attached screen shot shows the condition after I tried to paste the element.
I clicked on the mid-length of the vertical line to execute the paste command, but
all that accomplished was to highlight the vertical line. When I click on white
space to paste the element, nothing happens. Am I missing something?

Anthony,
Copy/Paste will copy objects based on their geometric definition. If you
copy and paste on the same sheet, you will get a copy of the object on top
of the original. Paste does not attach the copied geometry to the cursor so
that you can paste to a different location. If you want to do a copy in a
different location, use the Move command with the Copy button enabled. this
will allow you to copy to a different location. Or you can move the copy
that was pasted on top of the original.

Rick B.

That's good to know. I will put some more effort into this using the move command.
Thanks for your response.
