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 :

So even if you select a single element, you can not copy and paste it?

Versions 6.5 to 27
Dell XPS- i7-6700 @ 3.4Ghz, 16GB ram, GeForce GTX 960 (2GB), Windows 10
Lenovo Thinkpad - i7-1270P 2.20 GHz, 32GB RAM, Nvidia T550, Windows 11

It's possible with a single element and more, but should be under 1,000.

So obviously there is not problem with copy & paste itself.

 

You should be able to select many, many elements at once and copy & paste them.

So the question is why can't you?

It may be just a process of elimination.

Select half the objects, copy & paste.

If it works try the other half.

If not then try just half of that original half.

You just have to try to narrow down what could be causing the problem.

Unfortunately it is not something we will be able to help you with just by looking at an image.

I understand, but it would have been like a child's game. These simple issues need to be resolved by Graphisoft for a software like ArchiCAD.

But the question is, what are the issues?

I have no trouble copy & pasting entire models of houses.

You will need to figure out which elements you can not copy and paste before Graphisoft have any chance of fixing it.

Or maybe get your local Archicad Support involved to see if they can help figure out what the problem is.

I will send them the files so that they can investigate, look for the issues, and find them as usual. They used to find serious ArchiCAD issues from my files after pretending they were on my side.
