Cut, copy, and paste will function as they do in other programs. They all use what's called the clipboard, which is a hypothetical "holding place" for items that have been copied or cut. Objects stay on the clipboard even once they have been pasted in the drawing.
Each tool has a keyboard shortcut, and can be found in the Edit menu, the right-click context menu when an object is selected, and in the toolbar at the top-left of CET above the Component Tab area:
Cut tool will remove the selected component(s) from the current position and put it on the clipboard until pasted in a new location in the current or a new drawing.
To Cut, follow these steps:
- Select the component you want to cut by clicking it so that it is outlined in yellow or purple and the yellow snap points are visible.
- Right-click and select Cut from the context menu. The selection will be removed from that space and is placed on the clipboard for you to paste.
Use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+X.
Use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+C.
