Is there a way to do this?
I'm looking at a schematic deep down in the hierarchy. I select some components. Is there a way to copy this to a "clipboard" - cadence-specific?
What I'd like to be able to do is then return-to-top and paste this selection.
I understand - and it would be trivial to do precisely that under the hood. We've also been looking into having more of this kind of copy-paste paradigm in the tools. That said, the approach I suggested is hardly onerous on the user!
Ah, I just remembered that I wrote something to do precisely this, although for layout. It probably needs a bit of work to make it work OK with schematic. If I have a moment later today I'll see what I can do to update it for schematic/symbol copying too.
