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 Paste 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   edit 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.
