Copying Multiple Items (Beam, post, pier) to Paste


Recommended Posts

I'm new to this, but am trying to draw a 15 x 35' deck with 4x4 posts under 4x6 beams under 2x6" joists. Problem is the software creates a 15' span, so I need to add in another beam, posts and pier blocks down the center. For the life of me, I can't seem to select all of the objects and copy them into the center of the deck. Any help?

Answers (like this one) 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.

Thanks, Eric! Updated my signature.


Thank you. The software changes with each new version, so we also need the year -- Pro 2022, for example.
