Copy and Paste in ArchiCAD 27

Whatever the way I used, I couldn't paste the following drawing I copied from ArchiCAD 27 to ArchiCAD 27 within the same file :

Nothing has changed that I am aware of.

Select, copy, move somewhere else, paste.

 

Does this apply to anything you copy & paste (i.e. just a single line).

Or only what you show in your image.

If just what is in your image, then you will need to investigate what is in there that is causing the problem.

Try selecting less elements.

It's frozen anytime, and I was surprised about that.

I am surprised as well.

So you can't copy & paste anything in 27?

 

Have you tried key board shortcuts as well as right click context menu or the EDIT menu?

It works properly for small and medium projects, but not for large ones.

Are those Archicad elements?

As a workaround use the marquee and save as module, import back and emded.

Although copy should work but maybe this is a hardware matter... Or a faulty library element.

Try also a repair.

How many elements are we talking about? You can check it in the Edit Selection Set Dialog (CTRL+SHIFT+T).

This is another project, which is smaller than that I had shown previously, and still have the same issue.

That is less than 3,000 elements, which Archicad should be able to handle easily.

I recommend that you contact your local reseller with this issue and ask for their help in resolving it.
