Tip

The Clipboard can also be used to cut or copy a text box, picture box, line, or group when the Item tool is selected, or a picture if the Content tool is selected. Be sure to Paste using the same tool that was used to Cut or Copy.


You can use the Drag and Drop Text feature to move or copy text quickly without having to execute any Clipboard commands. You can drag-and-drop text within the same box or between linked boxes (a story), but not between unlinked boxes. This is a very handy feature for doing quick copy edits.

Note: In order to drag-and-drop, the Drag and Drop Text box must be checked in Edit menu > Preferences > Application > Interactive folder tab .
