I opened the two test drawings on the post and can cut and paste between them with no errors, the plot styles go a bit nuts but thats it.

**edit**
plot styles didn't go nuts, I pasted to one of my drawings with the same plot style name but different text size
and I'm using Vanilla 2008.

well this is a problem with 2004 I think. I can open the same two dwgs in 2007 or 2008, and have NO problem copying and pasting. Open the same dwgs with 2004, no chance.

I tried the supposed "hotfix" but to no avail.

do both your 2007 and 2008 versions have the current service packs installed?

probably not. I say that only cuz our IT isn't much of a CAD manager, and we don't have a CAD manager. So updates from Autodesk are blocked. Installation is on HD and not from the server.

I would definitely recommend you download and install the service packs.

i don't have permission to install service pack. And I'd rather keep my arm and leg to get that permission, if ya know what I mean.

you do mean the servicepack 1a for 2004, right?

You need to service pack all autocad versions.

The service packs are to fix bugs with the software, to not install them is just not worth it, any IT person worth their salt would see the benefit of having all software running correctly, if they won't service pack software they are nuts.

Service pack one for 2008 fixes this issue

Copy/paste now works in the drawings saved as 2000 and then resaved in AutoCAD 2004, AutoCAD 2005, or AutoCAD 2006

Service pack two for 2007 also fixes the same issue

    * Cut and Paste

I used TrueConvert and saved back to ver 14 then opened in ACAD2000.
It will not allow any copy & paste within the DWG.
Also opened in ACAD2006, stil no Copy & Paste.
The Copy showed 1 object found bur no paste,

I noticed thet there is a DXF code 370 in most objects, even when I add a LINE the code is there.
(370 . -1)
This in not in my other drawings & something is adding it within this drawing.
That's all I have time for..

Oh, I used MP's (c:getproxies  and it generated an error.

copy and paste is a known issue, but you need to service pack to overcome it.

okay, I just got finished talking with IT, and she said soon I'm having to upgrade from 2004 to 2007 anyways. So that will just send me back to the drawing board  :lol:

hope that don't make my custom menu obsolete!

your upgrading to 2007, just as 2009 is about to come out.

That's some IT department you've got there.

I feel i have encontered this problem before, and i have alos found a solution.

When drawings have been created in AuotCAD 2006 or higher, and have been backsaved to an older version say 2000, certain "reactors" (excuse my terminology here, i am not a software guy, ironically i'm a CAD manager, so i suppose i am).  this means that some drawings bieng worked on in that lower version of AuotCAD (say 2002) copy and past AND wblock and block creation is disabled/blocked in laymans terms "broken"

Solution:

Download True drawing convert (or what ever they call it now).  open the affected drawings save them back up to 2007/2008 and then resave them back down to the version/format you require.

Below is an older link to the very topic on the Autodesk website:

hope this helps, just trying to give something back

thanks for the info...

that would work for me, but only once. Just as soon as I close the dwg, someone else with 2007 or 2008 opens and saves it again, rendering it useless to me again. I'm having to keep TrueConvert open and running, with the engine already runnin hot as it is!!
