Word 2007: Clipboard Task Pane


Figure 16. Clipboard Group


Whenever you choose to Cut or Copy data, it is automatically placed on the Windows Clipboard. And, it stays on the clipboard until it is replaced with something else that has been cut or copied. The Windows Clipboard can hold up to 24 different items at one time which makes it really easy to cut, copy and paste multiple sets of data at one time. In fact, you can copy 10 different items and then paste them all to a new location with the click of one almighty mouse button.

Pasting Multiple Sets of Copied Data Using the Clipboard Task Pane

1.       Open the Clipboard Task Pane by click the Dialog Box Launcher ( ) located on the lower-right corner of the Clipboard group on the Home tab

2.       Select the text you want to Copy

3.       Click the Copy button on the Home Tab in the Clipboard Group

4.       Repeat steps 1 and 2 for each set of data you want to copy (up to 24)

5.       Either select each copied item one at a time or click the Paste All button


When you no longer need the data stored in the Windows Clipboard, you can click Clear All to empty the Clipboard and start again.
