I have created a beam to column plate connection. I am trying to replicate it to the other connections. I select the connection command, select the column and the beam, and I receive an 'unspecified error', and it kicks me out of the command.

When I attempt to simply copy the connection, it automatically selects the beam that is attached to the connection.

Can you please send us the model on which this issue reproduces (and highlight which connection generates it). To send the file you can use the forum "Attach" function.

The items to be connected is circled. The command is 'Plate Joints', 'Moment End Plate'. It needs to look like the connection on the immediate left.

On my side the moment end plate connections are copied correctly to the highlighted place. Please use the Advance Steel copy connection commands like "Copy by template" (_AstM4TransferCons) or "Copy by template, multiple" (_AstM4TransferConsMulti). This commands asks you first to select the source joint (it can be the joint box or an element created by the joint, like bolts, plates etc.) and then the target beams (column/rafter in this case). I've attached the model on which I've made those copies. If the problem still reproduces on your side, please send me the exact steps you make when the error appears.
