This AutoLISP routine allows you to copy and paste objects between drawings without having to worry about the UCS setting (or Object Snap setting) in either drawing.

Raymond Rizkallah submits a tiny but very useful routine. If you work with multiple drawings at the same time and they are in various UCSs, this is the routine for you. This allows you to copy and paste objects between drawings without having to worry about the UCS setting (or Object Snap setting) in either drawing. Since both drawings will need have this code loaded, this code should be loaded at startup by some method so that it’s always ready to go. The shortcut CB is used to copy the entities to the clipboard. The shortcut PB is used to paste those entities as a block into the target drawing. If you want to paste as entities, use the shortcut PBX.
