Cut/Copy and Paste text
|It is very rare to be able to write and everything falls
into the proper order. For example, often when writing a letter,
we discover the second paragraph should really be after the third paragraph.
Most novices would erase everything and start again, or ignore the issue
and be left with something less than satisfying. That is where cut
and paste comes into play. We want to cut out the paragraph and
it to another location.
