If the Clipboard contains ASCII text, the text
is inserted as a multiline text (mtext) object using the MTEXT defaults. A
spreadsheet is inserted as a table object.
All other objects, except AutoCAD LT objects,
are inserted as embedded or linked (OLE) objects. You can edit these
OLE objects by double-clicking them in the drawing to open the application
in which they were created.
When you copy objects
to the Clipboard, information is stored in all available formats.
When you paste the Clipboard contents into a drawing, the format
that retains the most information is used. You can also use Copy
and Paste to transfer objects between drawings.
NoteYou can also use
Ctrl+V to run PASTECLIP. If the cursor is in the drawing area, PASTECLIP
behaves as described. If the cursor is at the Command prompt, text
from the Clipboard is pasted at the current prompt.
