You cannot copy door or window, as it's part of the wall. What you can do - use drag a copy command to make door copy in the same wall or use pipette (shortcut Alt) to pick up parameters from already created door - then new door will have these parameters, or you can inject picked up parameters into another door (syringe to Alt Ctrl).

Hello kmk63,
Doors and windows are part of a wall, so Ctrl+C wont work. The correct command for this operation is Drag a Copy. Though Ctrl+C/V will work if you select the entire wall.
Hope this helps.
