I have a cabinet or other item on the first floor, and I want it in the exact same place on the second floor. How can I do this?


You can easily copy and paste information between floors or between drawings using the Hold Position tool. 


To copy, paste and hold position:

  1. With your first two floors already built, and the item you wish to copy in place on the first floor, select the object and click on the Copy/Paste  button.

  2. Click on the Up One Floor  button to move to floor 2.

  3. Click on Edit> Paste> Paste Hold Position  and the object will paste in place.
