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

Thanks all :)

@omid3098, weird :/ Have you deleted all files in your #autoback folder?

@Barbiturat, mmmh I've not planned to add a clear button

@titane357, you can keep the grid if you want, just edit the script and comment these lines:
--viewport.setGridVisibility 1 off -- Cache la grille, cest moche!

Unknown system exeption

it seems there is something wrong here:
just copied a model from my scene and pasted into another clear scene.
it was working, but today I can not make it work any way.
I guess it may be related to scene units, because first time this happened was this difference. or maybe I'm wrong :-??
here is what listener says:

"I'm a virgin button !"
"I'm a virgin button !"
"I'm a virgin button !"
-- Error occurred in Pasteselected1.pressed(); filename: C:\Users\Consul1\AppData\Local\Autodesk\3dsMax\2011 - 64bit\enu\UI\usermacros\zOffTy Tools-Copitor.mcr; position: 3321; line: 64
-- Frame:

Thanks! Very useful

Thanks! Very useful script!
Can you make "clear" button for Copy/Paste slots?

Great script! Just a minor suggestion...

Great script, zOffTy! Very handy for merging objects.

I have just one recommendation for improvement. I see that this script makes files in the project autoback folder. After I close the script and 3ds Max the files are still there. Wouldn't it be tidier and less resource consuming to make the script so that it deletes these temporary files after the objects are merged (or when 3ds max is closed)? I don't know if it's possible but just a suggestion :)
