NCOPY: Forgotten Express Tool for Copying Objects out of your XREF

Sometimes, you have your existing information XREFed in to your proposed base plan.  Though your surveyors may want to keep their boundary in the existing drawing, you need to “grab” it and other information so that you can begin making parcels or alignments or other Civil 3D objects from that foundation geometry. 

It is a big pain to have to open the second drawing just to copyclip out a few lines, so I rediscovered the Nested Copy tool under Express Tools.  It might be one you already know, but it has come in handy enough over the past two months that I thought it was worth mentioning.
