Something Else E@L Didn't Know
According to this guy who works for Microsoft I gather, in Word and most good text-editors (those more advanced that Notepad) if you highlight a section of text and press the CTRL key, you can Drag and Drop a COPY of the selected text, leaving the original in place. Why did no-one tell me that?
It works in Textpad too, the text editor I most commonly use. I love Textpad because it displays lists of HTML character code,, HTML tags, DOS characters, CRTL characters, ANSI characters, AND the clipboard history in a panel at the side so you can just double click to add whatever, wherever... It is not WYSWYG, but it has a spell-checker that obviously I don't use it enough, and it loads quickly without bogging down resources.
I only use Word if I am formatting a page for printing.
Found via Shakey, whence all things geek, of that ilk.

Thanks for setting up Quad-right again, it's easier on the eyes and what <s>Gawd</s> Gutenberg intended.
Life without strikeout is hard, life without preview is senseless.
Try <del>del</del> instead.
No. That doesn't work either
However, Preview DOES!
it works in windows explorer as well. Just highlight and ctrl drag and your file is copied. alternative for the ctrl-c ctrl-v shortcut for copying files.
Also works for text in Outlook! Obviously it is a system-wide thing for programs that support Drag-and-Drop functionality.
The world is an amazing place...
Ima mean quad left of course. Jeebus.
Quadleft = type aligned on the left.
A quad is a chunk of lead that was used to hold in type......
