Inventor 2020.1: Copy Properties Update

@ClintBrown3D Autodesk Inventor 2020.1

A really small, but useful enhancement to Inventor has been made in the 2020.1 update, and that is the addition of an icon next to the “Copy Properties” tool on the right click menu (drawing environment), as show above.

The “Copy Properties” tool is a really useful way to match the properties of on Dimension to one or several other dimensions on the drawing. This tool is very similar to MATCHPROP from AutoCAD.

The animated GIF below shows how the tool works. Note that other than the icon on the right click menu, this feature should be available in older versions too.
