Hoi!

I started to use EAGLE after I found that it was miles better than what I used to use. I have a small question: in the package I used to use previously, I used to copy the entire PCB and paste a clone next to the original one. That way, when I print out the artwork, I can print 2 PCB's on one sheet of transparency. I don't know how to do that in Eagle. The copy command seems to only copy 1 thing at a time. The only way I can do it is by changing the print settings to print the circuit at the top once, then print it again at the centre, but I'd like to have more control. Any way to 'bulk' copy?

Hi Amr,
I could never find a way to do it. So if anyone knows let us know:-)

Hi,

It should work like this. It will only work if you have drawn up a PCB without a schematic.

Click the Group button.
Then with the RIGHT MMOUSE BUTTON, draw a box around the whole PCB layout.
Then choose Edit->Cut. Don't worry, it will not remove the existing layout.

Zoom out a bit to get some room then click Edit->Paste. Job done.

Eagle CAD is a bit weird at times.

Yep Ian Thanks:-) I had to save a copy of the board and rename it to seperate it from the schematic.
Go to top of class
Cheers.
Regards,
Jim

Magic Ian! Works a treat! I found out that I can left-click to do it and I can use boards generated from schematics on my version. Seems weird that the cut command copies!

Saved my life Ian!
