Can I copy an entire building and paste it on to another plan (different file)?

 

On a plan with two buildings, can I move an entire building relative to the other?

Answers often depend on which title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2018, 2019 etc) you are using.

 

You can help everyone by adding that info to your signature (see below for how to turn them on) by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click Account Settings, then Signature on the left.

 

Doing so makes it always available, and keeps others from having to hunt for it.

 

And, turn on signature display too.

Thank you, Solver

"Edit Area" only allows me to copy and paste one floor at a time.  It might just be a built-in limitation of my consumer-level software.  There is no sub-menu after selecting Edit Area.  No option to select all floors.

 

I've spent the last few hours copying and pasting one floor at a time.  Maddening trying to align each floor.  I would love it if I could create a couple of reference lines and duplicate their exact position on each floor.  Then, I suspect my solution is mastering the snap settings.

I got the job done by copying and pasting one floor at a time with Edit Area, after creating reference lines on each floor for alignment.  I cleaned it up using the Align with Wall Below tool,
