Copying text by using the context menu

Making a copy of a selection of text, using the short context menu.

This technique is used when you need to both move and copy sections of text. You can use the contextual mouse menu after selecting the words you need, copy it, and then paste it anywhere, including multiple times if that’s what you need.

In some articles or documents you may need the same line or word repeated several times - instead of finding a spot each time and typing it out manually, just use the copy menu technique to save yourself a lot of time.

Unlike cutting, this will preserve the original text and will not delete it, so you can return to it later for modification or additional copying if needed.

You can also use this technique for rearranging text by leaving a copy as a placeholder while you move the selection, and then cut out the original after you’ve done all the formatting you need.
