Selecting text and files


Paul Benson <paul.benson@...>
 

Hello all,

Instead of selecting multiple lines from a document, reverse the thinking process.

Delete the undesired lines, then select all, and make only one copy to the clipboard.

If you are working on a web page, you will almost certainly have to save it to documents, and then proceed as above.

Lastly, in order to avoid catastrophe, it might be prudent to work on a copy of your original text document. Updating the original, with the now severely depleted file, should not occur. However, what if you momentarily lost concentration, and did update the original?

Paul Benson.

Ah, I see. Is there any way to select particular lines of text and pasting
them to the clipboard while skipping others?

Doesn't work with text. Only works in lists like files in a folder.

I just tried that very thing on this email and it did not work.

Isn't there a way to select text or files that aren't contiguous and
pasting
them to the desired location all at once? For example, I'd like to
select
every second file or line of text and skip the rest. How would I go
about
doing this so that I don't have to cut and paste each individual file or
line? Thanks in advance.
