Managing Multiple Clippings with the Office Clipboard
Figure 5-7 To paste an item from the Office Clipboard, click it. Alternatively, point to the item,
click the arrow next to it, and click Paste.
By default, the Office Clipboard collects items you copy only while the Clipboard task pane
is shown. (You can change this behavior with an options setting.) While your Office
program is running and the task pane is open, it collects items you copy from any program—
not just Office programs. After you copy or cut 24 items to the Office Clipboard, the oldest
item is discarded. You can also delete individual items; as shown in Figure 5-7, click the
item’s menu arrow and then click Delete.
Paste Options uses only the most recently added Clipboard content. Pasting any other
item from the Office Clipboard uses the simple Paste command. (In most cases, that’s
equivalent to selecting Keep Source Formatting in Paste Options.)
If that doesn’t produce the result you want, simply press the Ctrl key or click the Mini
toolbar that appears after you paste. Paste Options then appears, and you can try
different options with Live Preview to correct the problem.
