I am using Autocad 2006. I am trying to <ctrl> copy some objects from one drawing to another. But when I try to <paste to original coordinates> it won't let me. In fact, it isn't even highlighted in the drop menu.
So, I figured I would just Wblock it, and go from there, except when I hit the save button, I get this message: "Wblock operation rejected due to a proxy object that does not allow copying".
I never knew that proxy objects couldn't be copied.
Anyway, I set my proxy notice back to <1>. and re-opened the dwg. I got the proxy notice and scrolled down to find out that the proxy objects were from Civil 3D 2006.
ummm, OK didn't know I did anything with that program, but oh well.
So, I DL'd the object enablers for it. Re-opened the drawing and did not get a proxy notice. I thought I was in business, but nope. It still would not let me copy or write block.
So, my question is this. My drawing has tens of thousands of objects. How do I identify the proxy objects, so that I can just erase them, and re-create them.
Or is there another trick I can try, but just don't know about?
Deadlines are looming here, and any help would be greatly appreciated.
