Deleting, Copying, and Pasting Text
The Edit menu contains commands for text-editing operations.
Here are ways to edit text:
To copy (or cut) and paste text, select the text and choose Edit > Copy or Edit > Cut.
Click where you want to paste the text.
To have the copied text retain its formatting, choose Edit > Paste.
To have the copied text take on the style formatting of the text in the location where it’s
pasted, choose Edit > “Paste and Match Style.”
To delete text, select the text and choose Edit > Delete or press the Delete key.
If you accidentally delete text, choose Edit > Undo to restore it.
When you use the Copy or Cut command, the selected text is placed in a holding
area called the Clipboard, where it remains only until you choose Copy or Cut again or
you turn off your computer. The Clipboard holds the contents of only one copy or cut
operation at a time.
