Copy and paste in EAGLE Answered

When creating a schematic in eagle, in a step by step instructions how do you copy and paste multiple components and nets all at once?


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.

Wow, that is good...

Can you post me the link to it? Please?

Thank you! I got the program up and running, now I just need to learn how to use it...

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.

haha, thanks, i figured this out about a year ago, but helpful to those who don't know!

Dammit! I can't believe I did that! :P

mkeymont threw me off by bumping the thread... and I didn't notice the 2007!

Hahaha-oh, NO! Here comes Bumpus! Duck and cover! >Pulls into a ditch< Best just to lay low for a bit. Bumpus doesn't take too kindly to bumpers...

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...)

Thanks!!! :)
