Cut and Paste Hotfix
This hotfix will correct a problem where cut and paste, copy and paste, block and insert, wblock and insert, and drag and drop operations fail in drawings that are saved in AutoCAD® 2000 and AutoCAD Release 14 file formats.
If you open or create a file in AutoCAD 2007 and save it in AutoCAD 2000 or
AutoCAD Release 14 file formats and then open the drawing in AutoCAD 2000,
2000i, 2002 or AutoCAD Release 14 and attempt to cut and paste, copy and paste,
block and insert, wblock and insert, or drag and drop objects, then these
operations will fail.
Once the hotfix is installed, drawings that are subsequently saved in AutoCAD 2000 and AutoCAD Release 14 formats will work as expected. However, drawings that were previously saved in these formats from AutoCAD 2007 will continue to have the problem unless they are resaved with the hotfix applied. The 2000 from 2007 Find Utility can be used to help identify those drawings. If you have a large number of drawings that need to be resaved, DWG TrueConvert is a free utility that will make the job easier. Make sure you apply the hotfix to DWG TrueConvert before resaving the drawings.
Note: AutoCAD 2000, 2000i and 2002 all default to the AutoCAD 2000 file format.
(1) Apply this patch only if the installation includes AutoCAD Mechanical 2007 or Autodesk Mechanical Desktop 2007.
(2) Apply this patch only if the installation includes AutoCAD 2007.
