Drag copy of ANY object in section

Would love to be able to create a copy of ANY element in section/elevation views. if you can move an object it seems logical that you should be able to drag a copy of it.

sections and elevations allow one to see vertical relationships more easily than in 3d and are a natural place to work for many tasks, would like to have these views be more equal modeling citizens.

Hard to believe this is not a request already, but i was not able to find it (if someone else finds it let me know and i'll vote there).

This is a long standing wish .. and something so unbelievably obvious it astounds me we are still waiting.

However due to the lack of any sort of wishlist tracking system - probably an intentional omission by Graphisoft - we can't really say for how long, nor how many duplicate wishes there are on this topic.
cheers,

There are even older. But there a few requests in a single topic. And they removed the vote. Here it is.

So 7 years .. since the dawn of the new forums. I guess it was around before that too somewhere.

This just illustrates another point i wanted to make about needing A Better Wishlist (.. i.e one that works)

Hmm, there are some useful stuff there at your site, like (for me) the Layer Palette, Section Dimensions, Zone Names in Dimensions.
Keep up the good work guys.

Hi,

until is implemented, it's already available as an add-on , you can use this http://www.simpleaddon.com/Eng/PM_SectionCopy.html

Regards, Ede


Sorry Miklós, i saw your link later at the bottom of your message, but I think it's better to appear twice than at all.

Nice add-ons !
