Many months ago we had a tutorial on the forum about cut and paste. I couldn't do it at the time and was very grateful for the lesson and being able to practise on the thread.

Here's the sequence - if I've got it wrong someone please correct me.

Left click at start of text to be copied, hold down and run over text. Check that all area to be copied has turned blue.

Right click, and left click on 'copy' option.

In the 'Reply' box you may paste the copied material at any point.

Left click to position cursor and then right click and select 'paste' by left-clicking - the selected text should appear.

If you practise on this thread I'm sure you will soon master it.

Of course the thread should read 'Copy and Paste'

Not wishing to teach egg sucking -- but you can also highlight the required text and using yr keyboard press control key (bottom left ctrl)and the letter C to copy then in the space you wish to copy left hand click then press control and the letter V this will then put text where its wanted
