Why can’t I copy any new text or geometry in my drawing?

If you are unable to copy any new text or geometry into your drawing, this can be caused by the Clipboard File(s) being corrupt or damaged, to fix the copy and pasting of new text/geometry, you will need to delete the files that stores the copy and pasted information by following the below instructions:

  1. Close DS|Design
  2. Browse to to C:\Users\[USERNAME]\Documents\DynaSCAPEDS\prefs\
  3. Go into the prefs folder and delete the CLPBOARD.LIB and the CLPBOARD.TXT files.

After you have removed the 2 files, open DS|Design and try to perform a copy and paste.
