Copying a Diagram to the Clipboard

This tutorial is a very simple example, but also very handy when producing reports and documentation.

You can copy and paste your current diagram using the shortcut CTRL+B. It's a simple way of copying and pasting your diagrams into word processors, image manipulation tools or any 3rd party environment that can handle images.


The above image was copied using the default options and the shortcut CTRL+B.

Some preferences exist when copying diagrams to the clipboard.

  • By default, Enterprise Architect places a diagram caption and border around diagrams copied to the Clipboard. To turn this off, go to Start > View > Preferences > Diagram > Diagram Frames > deselect Clipboard Images.
  • Sometimes it's convenient to turn off the Opacity on Diagram Labels. That can be done from Start > View > Preferences > Diagram > Use Opaque Diagram Labels > deselect Clipboards and Files.
  • Images are created in Metafile format by default. Bitmap format can be selected from Start > View > Preferences > General > Clipboard Format.

For more options exporting diagrams from EA, watch our demonstration video Diagram Export Options

    I've always used Ctrl+C which does the same (very useful to copy to a Word or Powerpoint). Not sure if there's any difference with the Ctrl+B shortcut.
