For more detailed instructions on using the buttons in the Clipboard group, see Sections 7, 9, and 11 of the book, or sign up for the Essentials course!

Here we begin our roundup of posts relating to each part of Word’s ribbons, explaining the best practices of using them in specifically in an editorial production workflow. These posts build on top of the explanations and guides found in the multimedia guide to Editing in Word 365.

The very first group on the very first ribbon we see in MS Word is the Clipboard. It contains several options for pasting content, a scissors button for cutting selected material, a duplicate page button to copy material, and a format painter.

For more tips and fancy tricks for working with the clipboard, see Section 7 in the book: Copy–Paste Magic!

For fancy fingerwork to select large chunks or non-adjacent content, see Sections 11, 38 and more tips throughout Editing In Word 365.
