To Drag or Rotate multiple copies of an element, select the element, choose the desired command from the Edit > Move menu or the context menu (or use Ctrl + Alt (Windows) or Cmd + Opt/Alt (Mac) as a shortcut). You will see a “++” sign appear. Click the element to drag or rotate its copy to its new position. You can place any number of copies. Double-click to finish placing copies.

Note: When rotating copies, they will all be placed along the same rotation axis.

This feature works in the Floor Plan, Section/Elevation/IE windows and the 3D Window. In Detail Drawings, you can use it on any drawing elements. In the 3D Window, Drag/Rotate/Mirror is available only for added Drawing elements.

To create one or more copies of an element that are offset from (rather than exact duplicates of) the original:

See Offset All Edges.
