Parts of a drawing (or even a whole board) can be copied onto other drawings by means of the commands CUT and PASTE.
To do this you first define a group (GROUP command). Then use the CUT command to put the selected objects and elements into the buffer. Now you can change to another board or package library (EDIT) and copy the contents of the buffer onto the new drawing by executing the PASTE command.
If you click the mouse after selecting the CUT command, the position of the mouse cursor defines a reference point for the group, i.e. when using the PASTE command, the mouse cursor will be at the exact position of the group.
Unlike other (Windows-) programs EAGLE's CUT command does not physically remove the marked group from the drawing; it only copies the group into the paste buffer.
