Q - question

Copy/Paste functionality with added support for UCS.

A - answer If you use clipboard to copy AutoCAD drawing objects, you may found a problem when copying/pasting objects in an offset or even rotated ucesr coordinate system (UCS).

With the add-on utility CopyBase you can easily clipboard-copy objects even in cases when you use customized UCSs.

Download the CopyBase tool from, load the LSP file into AutoCAD (e.g. with APPLOAD). The application defines two new commands - CCC and VVV - thet work similarly to COPYBASE and PASTEORIG, only they respect the UCS. You can assign these commands e.g. to Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V.
