    Im kind of confused as to why the command "paste -i" doesnt exist when its described here as existing-

    It would be awesome if a pasted schematic only pasted INTO air blocks (so existing blocks wouldnt be replaced by schematic blocks) Especially because then you can combine schematics together and only the air blocks would be affected. Is there a version of worldedit that has this feature? Or did it never even exist?

    Awesome to see an update, but I'm still having an issue with the regen command that I thought was related to the mismatched versions.

    Basically say I select a small 2x2 square with my wand, or any sized space just as example, then use the regen command. It seems that regardless of what is selected, within the entire chunk(s) that the selection is in, entities like item frames and such disappear, all chests seem to be emptied, signs are blanked, trees, water sources and lava sources are respawned across the chunk, animals will generate, I had stone walls that turned in to granite.

    Any ideas as to the cause?
