Why doesn't CE View allow you to 'Copy to Clipboard'?

Why doesn't CE View allow you to 'Copy to Clipboard'? The previous versions did, but the new one doesn't. This is a feature that I used a lot.

  • Probably because, that would be something more involved than simply "viewing" a drawing.
    If the point of a viewer is to simply allow you to see a drawing, with no access to that actual data in it, I can see why they might have eliminated that loophole.

    Well that's a big shame as copy to clipboard is one of the main reasons why I use View. Without this I wont be using the CE version and will revert back to the SS4 version. The daft thing with this is that they, Bentley, must have deliberately though about removing this. A BIG loss I would say!

    Why was it a loophole. Copy to clipboard was written into the earlier versions. If you highlight an element you can right mouse click and get 'copy to clipboard'.
