#1 Ctrl+C or Ctrl+Insert and Ctrl+X
Ctrl+C or Ctrl+Insert will copy the highlighted text or a selected item. Select the text or item (works also for pictures), use the suggested keyboard combination and then position your self where you would like to input the copied text or item...
If you want to cut an item instead of copying it, press Ctrl+X. This action removes the text or item storing it in the clipboard for you. You will remove the original and still be able to copy it to the destination.
These keyboard shortcuts consider only the last action to copy or cut what is in the clipboard.
