Paste the contents of the Clipboard into the raster image

Similar to many other Windows applications, you may also copy and paste images, elements or areas of your raster image from another application into Scan2CAD. Copying and pasting from the Clipboard into Scan2CAD is very easy to do, and makes editing convenient as well.

1. Cut or Copy an area of a raster image in another application onto the Clipboard.
3. Select Raster Edit Menu > Paste From > Clipboard.

(You can also select File Menu > Tile > Add Tile from Clipboard, which does exactly the same thing.)

The contents of the Clipboard are pasted into the raster image on the screen.

 The pasted area is outlined in red-white. If View Menu > Cursor Type > Graphic is selected, the cursor changes to the Move cursor: .

4. You can now do any of the following:
Move, rotate or scale the pasted area
Complete the paste by clicking the right mouse button and selecting ‘Paste Completed’.


Click to undo.
