Paste in place object(s) on selected layers vs

Recommended Posts

I am researching the availability of a vs that would do the following:

Copy object(s) to Paste (this step is performed pre vs execution)

Execute vs

1. VS Brings up a dialog window with available design and sheet layers

2. User selects layer(s) on to which the object(s) to be pasted in place

3. Click "OK"

4. Layer visibility set to "Active Only", the script activates each selected layer

in turn and pastes in place initially copied object(s)

Note: I plan to paste object(s) on layers with the same scale hence

no scaling is necessary.

The purpose of this script for my self is to speed up the placement of

title blocks with or without border on intended design or sheet layers.

It is easier to setup a title block and border on one layer and then copy

and paste in place on the rest of needed layers, then edit the title block

information via the a worksheet with the added two way editing in 2008

ability. As a TB location reference I can use =L for layer record while

editing the information at worksheet.

I acknowledge that I am not a vs oriented and I am inquiring if someone

has such a vs that would like to share.

Hi Pat,


I am so interested in this script as well. All time i have to copy and paste layer per layer each object and I would like to know if its any option to select multiple layers at the same time.
