- In older versions of EAGLE the COPY command was used solely to copy objectswithin a drawing, as opposed to the Windows behavior, where COPY places acopy of the selected objects (i.e. the GROUP) into the system's clipboard.As of version 6, EAGLE's COPY command primarily behaves the same way as inother Windows applications, by putting a copy of the current group into theclipboard. The original functionality of copying selected objects, orcopying library objects between libraries, is still fully available, whichis especially important to keep existing scripts and ULPs working.What has also often irritated Windows users is that in EAGLE the CUTcommand has only copied the current group to the clipboard, but did notactually delete the group from the drawing. Since a CUT command thatdeletes the group would not be of much use in a board/schematic pair thatis connected via forward-&backannotation, the CUT command has beenremoved from the main pulldown menu and the command button toolbar. It isstill fully available from the command line or within scripts. The command Code: [Select]SET Cmd.Copy.ClassicEagleMode 1restores the old behavior of both the COPY and the CUT command. Note thatthis setting only takes effect the next time you open an editor window.- Added a note to the online help of COPY about how to copy objects fromone schematic sheet to an other.
