What is Copy Command?

An object in the drawing workspace can be cloned to produce multiple objects of the same size with the aid of the copy command. It is used to produce multiple copies of the required object. Sometimes, it is required to draw the same objects for 'n' number of times and it can be tedious work for the user. So, the user makes use of the copy command to simply select the object and produce multiple copies of it within the current workspace. For more accurate positioning, displacement functionality within the copy command can be further specified by the user.
