Instead of exploding or binding an xref, block, or DGN underlay to be able to copy objects nested within them, you can copy the selected objects directly into the current drawing.

NCOPY (Command)

The following prompts are displayed.

Nested Objects to Copy

Specifies the component of an xref, block, or underlay that you want to copy.Base pointSets the point to be used as a base point for placing the copied objects.Second pointIn combination with the first point, specifies a vector that indicates how far, and in what direction, the selected objects are moved.

If you press Enter to accept the Use first point as displacement default, the first point is interpreted as a relative X,Y,Z displacement. For example, if you specify 2,3 for the base point and press Enter at the next prompt, the objects move 2 units in the X direction and 3 units in the Y direction from their current position.


Specifies a relative distance and direction from the base point location.


Controls whether multiple copies are created automatically as you specify additional locations.


Arranges a specified number of copies in a linear array using the first and second copy as the spacing distance.Number of items to array

Specifies the number of sets of the selected objects in the array, including the original selection set.

  • Second point (Number of items). Determines a distance and direction for the array relative to the base point. The distance you specify determines the distance between the base points of each object in the array.

FitArranges a specified number of copies in a linear array using the first and last copy as the total spacing distance.

  • Second point (Fit). Positions the last copy in the array at the specified displacement distance and direction. The other copies are evenly spaced in a linear array between the first copy and the last copy.


Controls whether named objects that are associated with the selected objects are added to the drawing.InsertDuplicates the selected objects to the current layer without regard to named objects. This option is similar to the COPY command.BindIncludes named objects such as blocks, dimension styles, layers, linetypes, and text styles associated with the copied objects into the drawing.

To backtrack your recent actions, you can employ several methods.

Undoing a Single Action

The most straightforward approach is to utilize the UNDO or U commands to reverse a single action. Many commands incorporate their own U (undo) option, allowing you to rectify mistakes without exiting the command. For instance, while creating lines and polylines, you can enter ‘u’ to reverse the last segment.

The undo key from a computer keyboard

Please note: By default, consecutive pan and zoom commands are combined into a single operation when undone or redone using the UNDO command. However, pan and zoom commands initiated from the menu are not merged and remain individual actions.

Undoing Multiple Actions Simultaneously

To mark an action while working, utilize the Mark option of UNDO. Subsequently, you can use the Back option of UNDO to reverse all actions that occurred after the marked one. Additionally, the Begin and End options of UNDO enable you to define a set of actions as a group for undoing.

Alternatively, you can undo multiple actions simultaneously by leveraging the Undo list available on the Standard toolbar.

Reversing the Effect of Undo

Immediately after executing U or UNDO, you can reverse the effect of a single command by using REDO.

Similarly, you can redo multiple actions at once by accessing the Redo list on the Standard toolbar.

Erasing Objects

You have the option to erase any object you draw. If you mistakenly erase the wrong object, you can restore it using either the UNDO command or the OOPS command.

Canceling a Command

To cancel a command without completing it, simply press the Esc key.

When viewing a layout in AutoCAD, some or all elements shown in model space do not display within the viewport in paper space.

Model space
Paper space Viewport– missing some elements

Following are the steps to check the issue and display the missed objects.

Check the object color is same as background color

  1. Select the objects in model space.
  2. In the Properties palette, look at the color.
  3. If it is close to or the same as the background display of the layout (thus not showing), change it. Note: For linework viewed as white in model space, the color “White” (rather than 255) will display white on dark backgrounds or black on light backgrounds in the software, and will print black. 

Check if the object is annotative object

  1. Select the objects in model space.
  2. In the Properties palette, check if Annotative is set to Yes.

Adjust or remove annotation scale

If the object is annotative, do one of the following:

  • In paper space, select the viewport and change its scale to match that of the annotative object.
  • In model space, select the object and add the viewport scale to the annotative scale list.
  • In model space, set Annotation to No for the affected objects.

In model space or in a layout viewport in paper space, you can display only the annotative objects that support the current annotation scale, or you can display all the annotative objects.

If you display all the annotative objects, those that do not support the current annotation scale are displayed using the annotation scale in which they were created.

Check to see if Annotation Display is turned Off

In paper space, do either of the following:

  • Enter ANNOALLVISIBLE on the command line and set it to 1 to have all annotative objects display.
  • Turn on Annotation display from the Status Bar (bottom-right of the drawing window).

DWGSee CAD 2025 supports ANNOALLVISIBLE in the command line, you may set it to 1 to display all annotative objects.

What Are Annotative Objects?

Annotative objects are annotation with one or more representations at different scales, and not separate annotation objects of which you change their height/scale or freeze/thaw their assigned layer to control final size and visibility within a viewport.

The following annotation objects can be annotative:

  • Hatch
  • Multiline and single-line text objects and text styles
  • Dimensions and dimension styles
  • Geometric tolerances
  • Multileaders and multileader styles
  • Blocks and attribute definitions

Note: Table objects and styles are not supported as annotative objects.

Here is an example of a model using annotative objects with two different scales; 1/4″=1′-0″ and 1/2″=1′-0″.

When the model is displayed in a viewport, the scale of the viewport controls which representation of the annotative object is displayed. If the scale of a viewport doesn’t match that of the annotative objects in the viewport, then those annotative objects are not displayed.

In the previous image, text, dimension and multileader objects are assigned the scales 1/4”=1′-0” and 1/2”=1′-0”. This is why not all annotation is displayed at the same time or in a viewport altogether; the first two viewports are assigned scales that match those of the annotative objects while the third viewport has a different scale.
