"Error (318) occured during the action Copy" when attempting to copy Floor Plan.

    Trying to copy a "Floor Plan" out of a drawing to another page.
    The following issue occurs:

    "An error (318) occured during the action Copy.
    Referenced cell Actions.Disabled[924] does not exist"

    Found a reference, but it was in German.... can't read German...

    Stripped down the drawing to the bare minimum, without macros and still
    same result.
    I'm thinking it is a default setting in the page not the drawing items
    The Shapesheet setting perhaps?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated...

    Can't figure it out....

  2. Hi Kate,

    It's difficult to know for sure what is going on, but there is a typical
    scenario for this error value. Basically there is a shape with a reference
    to a cell in another shape which in turn references another cell. Normally
    this is fine, but there are some specific circumstances when this does not
    work. This seems to occur most often when the shape references information
    in the PageSheet (the Shapesheet for the page). With nothing selected go to
    Window > Show Shapesheet to open the PageSheet. Look for any cells in a
    User-Defined, Custom Properties or Actions section. You can manually insert
    similar cells on the destination page. This may allow the copy / paste
    operation to succeed.
