Paste to Current Layer and Explode

Available in: Plus, Pro and Architectural

Select this command Paste as Block to paste the contents of the clipboard onto the currently active drawing Layer and then Explode them. The pasted items are placed onto the current layer regardless of their individual layer settings. All other settings such as Colour or Style are not changed. Please note that if any of the pasted entities use 'Layer' as the Colour or Style setting then the appearance may change if the settings of the original Layers are different. If the pasted items include and 'grouped' items such as polylines or symbols then these are exploded into individual entities. For more information about 'explode' see the Explode command.

Note, the icon for this command is only available when Draft it entities have been added to the windows clipboard with the Draft it Copy Copy (to clipboard) or Cut commands.
