Lesson 19. Positioning and Sizing Object... > Cutting, Copying, and Pasting Object...

Cutting, Copying, and Pasting Objects

You can cut, copy, and paste objects on a slide to rearrange the objects or to use the objects to create a picture. When you cut an object, PowerPoint removes the object from the slide and places it in a temporary holding area called the Windows Clipboard. When you copy an object, the original object remains on the slide, and PowerPoint places a copy of it on the Clipboard. In either case, you can then paste the object from the Clipboard onto the current slide or another slide. To cut or copy an object, perform the following steps:

  1. Select the object(s) you want to cut, copy, or move.

  2. Right-click the selection and choose Cut or Copy from the shortcut menu. Or, select Edit, Cut or Edit, Copy, or click the Cut or Copy buttons on the Standard toolbar.

  3. Display the slide on which you want to place the cut or copied object(s). (You can also open a different Windows program to paste it into if you prefer.)

  4. Select Edit, Paste, or click the Paste button on the Standard toolbar. PowerPoint pastes the object(s) on the slide.
