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 2004 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.
