You guys saved my life but you didn’t go far enough. I was trying to copy a light plane to put into various windows so that they would glow a certain color and intensity of light through every single window. Couldn’t for the life of me find copy and paste object in the scene.
Then I found this thread. So I did what was suggested. I created a new plane. Copied the settings of the original pane and pasted it to the new pane. Of course it puts it on top of the original pane. All I do is move it to the next window but guess what???? It’s just copies the Transform settings. OOOHHH NO,,,,,, BUT….. I thought well,,,,, try it with the texture settings too!!!!!
At first I couldn’t do it but then I got it.. If you have the original plane selected AND you must have the Surface Selection Tool selected too. Then you go over to the Surfaces Editor, right click on the Plane name in question, You select “Copy Selected Surfaces”. Go select the new plane and right click on the plane name, again, in the surfaces editor. There you will see “Paste to Selected Surfaces”. This will copy all of the surface settings to the new plane. Beautiful!!!
They are exactly the same and they are separate objects. Because it is a new plane (or I assume any object) you can edit anything after the copy and it doesn’t change the original at all. Just move it to where ever you want it.
That problem solved.. One hundred more to go.
Thanks You guys.
