Chapter 2. Working in Programs > Dragging and Dropping Text

Dragging and Dropping Text

To move text in a document, you can always select the text and then drag it to a new location. You can even drag text from one document to another or from one application window to another.

To drag and drop text:

1.
Select the text you want to move (Figure 2.9).

Figure 2.9. Select the text you want to move.


2.
Position the mouse pointer on the selected text.

The mouse pointer becomes an arrow.

3.
Press and hold the mouse button and drag the pointer to the destination for the text.

A gray insertion point indicates the exact spot at which the text will reappear (Figure 2.10).

4.
Release the mouse button to drop the text at the new location (Figure 2.11).
