Well, I think it works easier to copy, cut, and paste, in that order, but
whatever floats your goat...

And even that can get you into difficulty.  Be aware that enlarging
drawings with a copy machine *also* enlarges the original lines.  A Device
came into Laurel (or maybe it was Golden Dolphin - it's confusing when you
work on both...) a couple of months ago that was an enlargement of a tower
taken from the SCA Pictorial Dictonary of heraldry.  It was supposed to be
white.  The copying had enlarged the lines of masoning so much that most of
it was *black*.  Had it not bounced for conflict, it would most probably
have gone back for a redraw.
