Use the Create Similar tool to place an element of the same type as the selected element. The Create Similar tool is available for most Vasari elements.
When you use Create Similar, each new element inherits family instance parameters defined in the Family Editor for the selected element. Elements created with Create Similar do not inherit values of instance parameters that were not defined in the Family Editor (such as Comments). The instance parameter values for the selected element apply to all elements created using that tool until the type is changed in the Type Selector.
To create similar elements:
- Select an element.
- Click Modify | <Element> tabCreate panel (Create Similar), or right-click an element in the drawing area, and click Create Similar.
- Click in the drawing area to place the newly created instance in the desired location. Repeat as many times as needed.
- To exit the Create Similar tool, press Esc twice.
