Using Cut, Copy, and Paste
Cut, Copy, and Paste: You can use the Cut, Copy, and Paste commands
from the Clipboard group with selected text blocks. The following section
describes these commands.
Using Cut, Copy, and Paste
Like any good Windows program, PowerPoint uses the standard Cut, Copy,
and Paste commands. These commands work on text that you’ve selected, or
if you’ve selected an entire object, the commands work on the object itself.
In other words, you can use the Cut, Copy, and Paste commands with bits of
text or with entire objects.
Cut, Copy, and Paste all work with one of the greatest mysteries of Windows —
the Clipboard. The Clipboard is where Windows stashes stuff so that you can
get to it later. The Cut and Copy commands add stuff to the Clipboard, and
the Paste command copies stuff from the Clipboard to your presentation.
For basic cutting, copying, and pasting, you can use the standard Windows
keyboard shortcuts: Ctrl+X for Cut, Ctrl+C for Copy, and Ctrl+V for Paste.
Because these three keyboard shortcuts work in virtually all Windows
programs, memorizing them pays off.
The Ribbon buttons for working with the Clipboard are found in the Clipboard
group of the Home tab. Three of the four buttons in this section are for
working with the Clipboard:
Cut
Copy
Paste
Notice that the Copy button includes a drop-down arrow. If you click the Copy
icon itself, the selected object is copied to the Clipboard. But if you click the
drop-down arrow instead, a small menu with two icons is displayed. The first
copies the selection; the second makes a duplicate. For more information
about creating duplicates, see the next section, “Duplicating an Object.”
