Copy and paste text? Answered

I'm writing my first instructable, and for the life of me can't find a way to copy/paste text. Seriously ? no Ctrl function? no mouse? Please tell me I'm just too dense and is located somewhere I haven't seen yet.

Copying and pasting does work in the editor with the standard CTRL+C & CTRL+V or by right clicking with a mouse.

But depending on where you're pasting from (Microsoft Word seems to be the worst) you will strip any formatting in the text and may even end up with extra characters. I always suggest using a simple text editor like Notepad to paste from. :)
