I know I've asked this question a few years ago, and I'm doing what was suggested back then, but I can't get to do what I want.

Here's what I want - I want to copy a portion of one map into another.

Here's what I'm doing:
    1. I open up one instance of XWE and open the map into which I want to copy stuff (call it Map A).
    2. I open up another instance of XWE and open up the map from which I want to copy stuff (call it Map B).
    3. I select the stuff in Map B that I want to copy over, and from the Edit menu I select Copy.
    4. I go to Map A and pull down the Edit menu, but 'Paste' is not available. In other words, I cannot paste what I have copied.

I will keep looking for the solution in the other forums. The Help file does not provide an answer.

Let me understand you correctly: you want to copy linedefs/sectors/things etc between maps? If so, XWE unfortunately cannot even do it within the same WAD between two maps. All you can do is select some stuff and then click Selection|Duplicate (within one map). The Edit|Copy and Paste commands are for the lump list. Or is it something else you want?

That is correct. I am creating a map in sections & assembling them into a single map, and have reached the limits of WadAuthor. I wanted to use XWE to assmble the sections, as XWE is not subject to the same limitations.

Ah, that's too bad. I'll look at other alternatives then. Thanks.
