I ran into the problem of turning off layer 0 in the past. I havn't done since. The layer is not locked either. It's a new file and only has layer 0 plus 2 others. Thanks for the input. Are you saying you got the 'read only' error or the 'object extents' error. they could be different.
I looked at this some more and came up with something different unrelated to Layer 0.All
layers are On.
Layer_1 has a 2D profile.
Layer_2 has a Simple Extrude from the profile.
"Use Compound Profile" was used so that the profile is associated with the extrusion.
Layer_1 (the profile) is locked.
The extrusion on Layer_2 is copied (Ctrl+C)
I use Paste (Ctrl-V) to place a copy of the extrusion back into the drawing.
I get the error "Failed because selection contains graphics which are read only"
I do get the extrusion and the profile
when I paste into the drawing.
If I use the Rubber Stamp or Make Copy features from the Local Menu, I don't get an error and only the extrusion is made.
I get the same error if Layer_1, the Profile layer, is turned Off
and not Locked
I hope this essay isn't too confusing.
