Hi, I have drawings with text and dimensions in Model space (a Text layer). I have 2 layouts in my template - one for US (Imperial) measurements and one in Metric measurements. Each layout viewports use VP Freeze to make sure that one printable layout shows all of the Imperial dimensions (only) and the other shows the metric (only) dimensions. I am converting a set of drawings into a set that has both systems of units in them as described.
I need to be able to turn off all layers but the one that has the Imperial text and dimensions in it, CTRL-A and CTRL-C to select all and copy to clipboard ... then need to be able to paste into the exact same position - but in a new layer, e.g. the metric layer. Then I can switch to the metric layer and edit (convert) the necessary values into Metric. The Layouts will then just be ready to print!
What sequence of steps and commands do I use to copy/paste to the same exact location but on another layer? Or at least to copy/paste to the same exact location but leave the pasted objects selected so I can use the Layers dropdown to move the selected objects to the other layer? I'm sure this is a common task, but I'm relatively new at CAD...
