The ability to copy and paste objects is functionality that any quality software product has. But did you know you can copy and paste properties from one object to another? Properties can include general object properties such as layer, color, linetype, linetype scale, and lineweight. They can also include properties specific to an object type such as dimension style or hatch pattern. You can spend a lot of time updating properties of objects getting them just right. Copying properties from one object to other objects can save time.

One of the best way to copy properties from one entity to another is MATCHPROP.
