Copying pcb layouts.

Copying pcb layouts.

Copying pcb layouts.

Hi guys, I hope you can help me with this problem I'm having.

I have multiple PCB projects each with its schematic and pcb.

I made a whole project and added all schematics successfully.
Now I want to create a PCB from all the schematics, which I can do, the problem is that I want to copy the layouts previously made and then route the connections between them. As is, I have to manually re route them again. Copy paste doesn's seem to work.

Is there any way I can copy a layout?

RE: Copying pcb layouts.

The same tools as work in most word processing programs work here... Select All (<ctrl>-A), Copy (<ctrl)-C), then Paste (<ctrl>-V).
