The CopyToClipboard command copies selected objects to the Windows Clipboard.


The object's Properties and location are stored with the object.
If the objects are grouped, a new group is created from the copied objects. The objects are not added to the group from which they were copied.
When you Paste objects into Rhino, they are placed on the same layer they originally had. If the layer does not exist, it is created when the object is pasted.
Right-click the Paste toolbar button to paste objects on the current layer.
In addition to geometry, the viewport image and command history text is copied.
When you paste into a program that accepts images such as Paint Shop Pro or Microsoft Word, the viewport image is pasted.
In the command window, on the right-click context menu, only text from the command prompt, text edit boxes, or other applications can be cut, copied, or pasted.
