Coach Teresa, how do I copy a block of text and paste it somewhere else?

 

I like shortcuts. I like sharing shortcuts with writers.

You’re composing a blog post or an email or you’re writing a new passage/scene or you’re moving sections of text . . .

How often have I lost time and energy drafting a blog post or submitting my comment to someone else’s blog post… because of a cyberspace glitch? Too many. I copy and paste every few minutes.

If you have a PC (I don’t  use a Mac) . . .

1. Use  your mouse to block/grab/highlight the block of text you wish to copy—by left-clicking at the beginning of the section you wish to copy, then continue holding down the left-click and moving your mouse to highlight the entire section you wish to copy, then let go of the mouse.

2. Left-click on “Edit” in your Toolbar; then left-click on “Copy”

OR

2. No Toolbar?  On your keyboard, press these 2 keys simultaneously–”Ctrl”  “C”

3. Go to the file or spot where you want that block of text to go to—by left-clicking at that spot just once and let go.

4. Left-click on “Edit” in your Toolbar; then left-click on “Paste”

OR

4. No Toolbar?  On your keyboard, press these 2 keys simultaneously–”Ctrl”  “V”

**************************

Why not “P” for paste? Because . . .  pressing these 2 keys simultaneously– “Ctrl”  “P” = “Print”

But why “V”?  “V” for verbatim

Sincerely,

Coach Teresa
