unfortunately, not in this case.

working on a 2d detail sheet, was reserved by someone else and they were missing in action, to relinquish.

Figured, if i could just copy what was there and modify, i could rectify later.

Are you coming from a Revit background?
It seems to me that you are using words used in Revit, like Sheet and relinquish.

Because of this I am not quite sure where you are exactly.
Are you in a Detail Viewpoint? Or are you on a Layout (Sheet in Revit)?
I don't have the BIM Server installed at the moment, but I agree with Eduardo that picking up the settings of any element (by using ALT/OPT-click) should work even if the element is reserved by someone else.

Also, who or what is missing in action? The person who made the reservation? If he is, then the BIM Server Admin should force him to leave the shared Project. Then all things reserved by him would be released and would be free to be reserved by others.

Also... as you have posted this, as a previous post, as a Wish... since it is clear that you are a Newbie to AC... please post your questions in the appropriate forum after thoroughly reading the Help and only post a Wish when it is clear that AC cannot do what you need.

I've always been able to copy and paste "things" (walls, lines, fills etc.) that are reserved by someone else.
