2. Interact with Your iPad > Cut, Copy, and Paste

Cut, Copy, and Paste

The iPad’s ability to move text and images around within a document (or between documents) is useful, but it’s not the tablet’s most intuitive feature. And no, you can’t use Ctrl-C to copy something because the keyboard has no Control key. But never fear, here’s how you move text and images from place to place—or program to program:

  1. To cut or copy text that you can edit (like an outgoing email message or a note), double-tap a word to highlight it. A Cut | Copy | Paste | Replace box pops up. To select more words, drag the blue dots on either end of the selected word. Then tap the Cut or Copy command. (If you select more than one word, you don’t see the Replace option; the next page has more on that.)
