How to Copy and Paste Items from a Project (DM Standard)

Modified on Mon, 06 Apr 2020 at 04:26 PM

The Copy and Paste buttons allow the user to copy Items between Projects or even within a Project.

To Copy and Paste a Component, Item, Location or Entire Project, go to the Projects and Specifications Window. Select the desired Component, Item, Location or the Project Name on the Specification Tree and click the Copy button. 

For our example below, we chose to copy an Item and paste it into another Project.

To paste the Item into a new Project, select the desired Project. Click the Location on the Specification Tree so it highlights, then click the Paste button. 

Now you can see the Item in the new Location.

Any 'level' on the Specification Tree can be copied and pasted. All the Items within a Location, or an entire Project can be copied by selecting the desired level on the Specification Tree.


Copied Items do not carry forward any accounting or document information.
