I know how to copy Loc/Rot/Scale from one object to another (select the one, then the other, then choose "copy to selected")... but this option does not present itself in the Dimensions panel. Is there another way to do this?

To be specific- I want Object A to have the same dimensions XYZ as Object B... is there a quick way to make this happen without having to type all three values in separately? I do this a lot, so a shortcut would be helpful.

    $\begingroup$ Does this answer your question? How can I copy and paste dimensions to make objects the same size? $\endgroup$ Jul 23, 2021 at 6:41
  • $\begingroup$ Hey Gordon. Technically speaking, yes, but that's not exactly what I was hoping to find. With all the steps involved I might as well just manually type in the XYZ values. I LOVE Blender but I'm so frustrated by all the things that Cinema 4D does sooooo much faster, this being a classic example. Anyway, cheers, appreciate the comment! $\endgroup$ Jul 23, 2021 at 7:38

    $\begingroup$ There is a python script in one answer to transfer the dimension data. I'm not a scripter, but I guess people who are firm with this can make a script that might be run with a shortcut and use the selected objects as inputs... I couldn't do it, but very often people are satisfied with script answers here so I thought it might help you, too. $\endgroup$ Jul 23, 2021 at 8:17

What you are describing sounds like Link object data and then keep the new data to the object. To do this, select the target object, then hold down shift and select the original object and press CTRL + L and select "Link Object Data"

enter image description here

Now, the target object is linked to the first one's data.If you are happy with that and you want the object to be individual again, select the target and go to Object > Relation > Make sigle user > Object and data.

enter image description here

Hope that helps.
