copy selected entities to clip board failed

Does anyone know what causes the " copy selected entities to clip board failed" error and how to fix it?


  • I've never seen that error message.
    What command are you using when you get it?
    Does it happen every time you use that command, or only when trying to copy certain entities to the clipboard?

  • I use the copy command. I select the items I want to copy and it immediately provides this error after I choose the copy command

    The Copy command isn't supposed to involve the clipboard, so that would be a very strange error message. The CopyClip and CopyBase commands both put the selected entities on the system clipboard. With CopyBase, you have to pick a base point. If you don't pick a point, the operation fails. In my v17, it doesn't give me an error message, but I find out it failed when I try to paste the entities.
