I am trying to create a mapkey that uses the cut and paste commands, with no success. I have tried using both control+c and right click-copy. What I would like to do is double click on a part number in the model inquiry dialog (do highligh it), then start the mapkey, which copies the part highlighted part number, opens the part, changes the material properties, saves the part, and closes it. I have gotten the latter portion done, after I open it, but am unable to use cut and paste to automate it fully. Thanks for the help.
