A Method for Copying Modifications to a Graphic Object
A method is described which permits an operator to select whether
modifications made to a graphic object will automatically be reflected to existing
copies of that object.
In some engineering documentation systems, multiple copies of a drawing
are required. If each copy has its own attributes (i.e., name) the problem of
updating the copies with different names becomes quite difficult and time-
In accordance with this method, the operator may at the time the copy is
initially made, indicate to the system if the copy should be a duplicate of the
original. If the copy is defined to the system as the duplicate, then all
modifications to the original are made to all duplicates automatically by the
system. The operator then has control over the copied objects and no extra effort
is required to update the duplicate copies. Disclosed anonymously
