Moving/copying text without the clipboard

This moves or copies text without first storing it in the clipboard.

Select the text to move or copy (use [Ctrl] to select non-adjacent blocks of text).

Point to your selection.

The pointer changes to images/IC-035.png .

To make a copy, press [Ctrl] and drag the selected text to the position at which you want the text copied. To move the selection, drag it to its new position.

While you are moving the selection, a rectangle accompanies the pointer. If you are making a copy, this rectangle has a plus sign attached to it.

If you like, you can change the pasted text’s format using the images/13i37.png button which appears below it.
