Copying and pasting information
We've now found Major Heffernan. If you wish, you can copy and paste his entry into a wordprocessor or another program.
To do this, look for the Text Select Tool on the toolbar. Click on the arrow and select the "Column Select Tool". The icon will now change to .
Now take the I-beam cursor and draw a rectangle round the text you want to copy. When you release the mouse button the text should be highlighted, as illustrated below:
Press CTRL-C (hold down the CTRL key on your keyboard, tap the "C" key, and release the CTRL key) to copy the text to the computer's clipboard. Start up or switch to your word processor (or whatever program you want to use), position the cursor where you want the text to be inserted, and press CTRL-V to paste the entry. The text will appear in your word-processor as:
T./Maj. James Gerald
M.C., 1st Bn., R. Dub. Fus.
The ability to copy and paste text is a very useful facilty, and long lists of men can be copied quickly.
