New steps have been added to the paste special wizard in SOLIDWORKS Electrical 2016.  This is very useful in helping the user to manage individual elements to paste.

When using the paste special command (Right-click > Paste Special or Ctrl + Shift + V) a dialog box opens which allows you to manipulate various options of the block you are pasting.  This includes creating new marks or keeping the existing marks that were copied.

New to 2016, we have even more options to manage the individual elements within the block we are pasting.  For example if we are pasting a circuit that contains various components and wires which have a variety of functions and locations assigned to them, we can now look explicitly into each individual component, wire, function, location, and so on to fine tune and rename or remark our circuit as we see fit.  This helps us keep organized and sort out all necessary changes in one step, rather than having to rename and remark each component individually after a regular copy & paste.

This new paste special interface also contains various searching and sorting options which is very handy when dealing with very large circuits that have a large number of components etc.
