Chapter 2. Editing in Word > Moving Text Around

2.2. Moving Text Around

Three commands—Cut, Copy, and Paste—appear in every word processing program known to humankind, Word included. But Office X has more powerful ways of manipulating text once you've selected it.

2.2.1. Copy (or Cut) and Paste

To copy text, highlight it as described above. Then choose Edit→Copy (or click the corresponding Standard toolbar button), click the mouse or use the arrow keys to transport the insertion point to your new location, and choose Edit→Paste. A copy of the original text appears in the new locale. To move text instead of copying it, use Edit→Cut and Edit→Paste; the selected text moves from one place to another, leaving no trace behind.
