    Default Copy Erase Previous And Paste

    ^C^C_copybase;0,0,0;pause;erase;previous;pause;pasteblock;0,0,0;

    Could someone please tell me what I am missing here. My goal is to:

    1. COPY objects at 0,0,0
    2. ERASE PREVIOUS(ly) selected (copied) objects
    3. PASTE previously copied objects (in clipboard) at original location (0,0,0) as a block.

    It only goes as far as copying, since it is in memory at the 0,0,0 point. I also tried it without the "pause". I don't need this to remain as a block since I usually explode it after I have finished moving it around to any new location. Just for temporary use. Also, I would like to use this since making a block or grouping will take much longer time.

    Currently, what I do is use my button to Copy 0,0,0, then manually erase the previous selected objects, then I use another button to paste the object in the memory at 0,0,0.

    Thanks in advance.

    Try this Lisp routine it will do what you are trying to do and is repeatable.

    THANKS A GREAT DEAL FOR YOUR REPLY. HOWEVER, I CAN ONLY SELECT ONE OBJECT, ALSO, IT DOES NOT PASTE BACK THE OBJECT. SINCE I ALREADY HAVE "CE" IN MY SYSTEM, I TRIED CHANGING THE COMMAND TO "CX", BUT THAT WON'T GO. BELOW IS WHAT I GET:


    Command: ce
    .copy
    Select objects: 1 found

    Select objects:
    Specify base point or [Displacement/Multiple] <Displacement>: 0,0,0 Specify
    second point or <use first point as displacement>: 0,0,0
    Command: CE Unknown command "CE". Press F1 for help.

    Command: .erase
    Select objects: P 1 found

    Select objects:

    "pause" is not a valid way to pause a CUIx command macro.

    Also, in a CUIx command macro you can use the Select command with a single pause to gather unlimited objects. So you just need to reorganize the command a bit (untested):

    ^C^C._Select;\._CopyBase;0,0,0;_si;_p;._Erase;_si;_p;._PasteBlock;0,0,0
