Copitor allow you to quick copy/paste selected objects to another Max scene or in another Max if you have 2 3dsMax open. I also like to use it like as a "quick backup" for try something, and to be sure to loose nothing :)

Installation: Drop The file in max viewport and go to Customize ==> Customize User Interface ==> Category: zOffTy Tools ==> Copitor

could be nice to have option

could be nice to have option like in merge tool : rename object or material name,... sometime it is a bit dangerous to paste in a file.

Thank you

Thank you very much "zOffTy" its important script . and thank you again for making it open source , so for that I modified it to add clean button (By holding SHIFT and pressing on image button) it will reset (paste button) and (delete the photo and max file) .

Great :)

Thank you for this! And another thank you for the source :) I've added "saveAsVersion:2011" at the end of "saveNodes" and now i can move stuff between 2011 and 2012 seamless :) Maybe it's a good idea to build those in :) Best regards
