Does EAGLE have any free trials?

Yes they do. They have a freeware version with a few limitations, but they aren't too bad. I use it and I haven't needed to go beyond them.

Oops, I did not know that... Sorry...

Also note the difference between the CUT & COPY commands. COPY instantly creates a copy of the selected, whereas CUT puts it in the buffer to be PASTE'd later.

Use the group tool to select, then click "Cut" then RIGHT CLICK on the group to copy it. Next simply paste it. The key is right clicking to select the group. Cheers!

Use the "group" command to drag and select a region containing the components you want to copy. Then use the "cut" command (which is actually "copy"), followed by "paste" to drop copies of the group down as many times as you want. The "copy" command is really a "duplicate" command and only does one component at a time... (this departure from the usual definitions of copy, cut, and paste is one of the more common complaints against EAGLE...)

Boo Hoo! I have the same problem, and no one knows. (?) I want to make 100 little boards on one with eagle and I can't figure out how to paste the other 99 copies.
