Chapter 1. Getting Started with Word > Copying and Pasting Text

Copying and Pasting Text

You can copy or move items (including blocks of text) from one place to another within a document, or from one document to another. To do this, you copy the item (or block of text) you want to the Office Clipboard, and then paste it into the new location or document(s). Word stores each item copied on Office Clipboard. After you have placed two items on the Clipboard, the Clipboard opens so you can select which copied item you want to paste. After you paste an item, the Paste Options button appears next to the item in the document. You can click the Paste Options button to display a list of options on the shortcut menu. This button, known as a smart tag, allows you to immediately adjust how information is pasted or how automatic changes occur.
