Copy command causes renaming of symbols

You can use COPY COMMAND to rename the symbols on your drawing. The settings for controlling the behaviour of COPY command are located in Elecdes Preferences.

NOTE: Rename after copy command option is not available in PowerCAD and FelixCAD.

Copy and paste causes renaming of symbols

You can use COPY AND PASTE or Ctrl-C and Crtl-V from the keyboard to rename the symbols on your drawing. The settings for controlling the behaviour of COPY AND PASTE are located in Elecdes Preferences.

NOTE: Rename after copy and paste command option is not available in PowerCAD and FelixCAD.

Renaming options

Settings for these commands are independent of each other i.e. you can have different settings for both commands simultaneously.

  • If you tick the first option you will be asked every time before Elecdes renames the symbols. You will see the dialog shown below.

  • If you tick the second option then Elecdes will stop renaming the components with COPY command.

  • If you tick the third option then Elecdes will rename the components without asking you you every time.
