The Std Copy command copies objects to the Clipboard.


  1. Select one or more objects.
  2. There are several ways to invoke the command:
    • Press the Std Copy button.
    • Select the Edit → Copy option from the menu.
    • Select the Copy option from the Tree view context menu.
    • Use the keyboard shortcut: Ctrl+C.
  3. If the objects have dependencies that have not been selected, a dialog box will prompt you to specify which should be included.


  • When you are working in a FreeCAD text window, an input box or a spreadsheet, the standard keyboard shortcut Ctrl+C, in almost all cases, does not call the Std Copy command but uses the Copy function from the OS instead.
  • It is not possible to copy-paste native objects between FreeCAD and other applications.
