Adding an item to the clipboard to then place at a different position either in a document or location

When you want to transfer a duplicate of one thing into another area or location, then you'll find it to your advantage to use Copy + Paste.

On Windows:

  • Copy: Ctrl + C
  • Paste: Ctrl + V

One Macs:

  • Copy: + C
  • Paste: + V

If you want to cut something out instead, you can often swap it with X.
