|We have our second plug-in of the month. Following in the footsteps of the Offset in XRef plugin, this month we bring you the Clipboard Manager for AutoCAD. This plugin was written by Mark Dubbelaar and edited by Kean Walmsley for publishing on his Through the Interface blog. The plugin can be used with AutoCAD to manage multiple clipboard entries, storing and renaming them for later use. Once loaded, the CLIPBOARD command displays the Clipboard Manager palette. When using Ctrl-C (or COPYCLIP) inside AutoCAD, this palette displays each new set of AutoCAD objects added to the clipboard.|
You can download the plugin from the Autodesk Labs site:
For those who wish to download last month's plugin, the Offset in XRef plugin, you can find a download link to this plugin on the Plugin of the Month Updates page under the HISTORY section. As we add a new plugin to the main page each month, we will move the link to the previous plugin to that page. This way the main page features the plugin of the month, but you can still access all of the previous plugins if you need to. That's how we roll.
So please try out the Clipboard Manager for AutoCAD and let us know what you think at [email protected]. We're particularly keen on hearing about development of other plugins that were inspired by looking at the source code for the plugins we've supplied.
Keeping the plugin of the month train rolling is alive in the lab.
