    inner workings of Virtuoso Copy command Reply

    Greetings forum

    Does the Copy command under virtuoso place db objects into a "paste" buffer that is still maintained after the copy command is terminated which could be accessed with a SKILL command some amount of time later ? Is the buffer erased and filled with a new object once the copy command is started again ?  Is there a history associated with copy that I can see ?

    thanks.

    Malcolm

     Hi Malcol

    There is no paste buffer used by any of the copies, the interactive ones copy the elements in the selected set, the SKILL one copies one object at a time.

    The interactive commands may leave you with a set of selected elements, I forget if they are the pre-copied elements or the new copies. You could save the selected elements as a named set and then recall them to copy again if you were doing this interactively.

    Ted's correct - it doesn't remember the shapes with Copy.

    However, the Yank command does store the figures in a buffer, and then the Paste command recalls that buffer. However, there is no SKILL interface to access the figures in the buffer.

    Regards,

    Andrew
