ACAD right click copy with base point doesn’t always work

When copying part of one dwg to another using the right click feature of "copy with basepoint", the copied entities do not paste when the right clicked "paste" is used. Why does this only work sometimes. It is very helpful feature when working.

Old post, but the fact that it comes up in google made me inclined to respond. I don’t know why acad acts this way, but I’ve had the same problem and found that it occurs if you’re copying with a basepoint through a viewport . Go into model space and copy with a basepoint. For whatever reason it works!

Good Luck
