A new idea that I have and want to know if possible? RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I had an idea and wondered if it was possible or if it's something anyone else think is a good idea. I had a thought that sometimes I wish it were possible to have more than 1 thing at a time copy and pasted, what if you can copy more than 1 item at a time and select from a list what you want to paste, is this something that can be made possible?

  • This has actually been available in Microsoft Office for a long time - it's called the Office Clipboard.

    See Copy and paste multiple items by using the Office Clipboard.

  • it doesn't work the way I'm hoping it would I've tried it and it doesn't give a list of items to paste only 1 item albeit a paragraph but not more than one thing at a time

  • Have you displayed the Office clipboard by clicking the arrow in the lower right corner of the Clipboard group of the Home tab of the ribbon?

  • yeah I went in there after copying several items and it said 1 of 24 that should mean that there was 24 items copied right? but only 1 item was in the list where is the other 23?

  • Try displaying the Office Clipboard first, then copy items while it is open.

    (The 24 is just the maximum capacity)
