Cut, Copy, Paste

Objects can also be Cut, Copied and Pasted into your project.

Cut (ctrl+x) moves the selection to the Clipboard and deletes the original. The object will remain in memory until another object is cut or copied.

Copy (ctrl+c) moves the selection to the Clipboard, but leaves the original in place.

Paste (ctrl+v) places the contents of the Clipboard into your project.

Note: Text can be copied from any other source including other programs, but it must be pasted into a text box.

Note: Photos and images must be imported into the program and cannot be pasted from one program to another.

You can also Delete Objects by clicking on the object once and then pressing delete on your keyboard.
