Copy AutoCAD Geometry to Another Layer or New Layer in One

As we are all aware it is very easy to copy geometry in AutoCAD to create another view etc. What if you wanted to not only copy the geometry but put it on a different Layer or perhaps a new Layer?

Well there is a way:
  • Open your drawing in AutoCAD
  • Type COPYTOLAYER at the command line
  • Now select the geometry you want to Copy, then type N, which will show the Copy to layer dialogue

  • Here you can either choose a Layer from the list to Copy the geometry to or type the name of a new Layer. Hit OK to complete, if you have chosen to create a new Layer you will be prompted to create it.
  • Now simply click down where you want the new geometry to go.
