In TILEMODE=0 this function creates a picture on the Windows Clipboard containing all entities from paperspace AND all viewports.




Return values

T on success or nil otherwise.

Command: (bpscopyclip)

Special Notes

Normally, AutoCAD will only allow selecting entities from paperspace or from one viewport, there is no way to get a WMF picture of all entities visible on the screen.
This function makes it possible to merge all that information into one picture.

  • Only lines that are actually visible on the screen will end up on the clipboard.
  • This function ignores any settings ("Ask about merging") that apply to the function BCOPYCLIP.
