Menu: Edit > Cut
Default Shortcut Key: Ctrl+X
Macro function: Cut()
The Cut command removes the selected text from the current file and places it on the current clipboard. The current clipboard might be the Windows clipboard or one of Boxer's eight internal clipboards. See the Edit | Set Clipboard command for details on changing the current clipboard.
If text is not selected, the Cut command will operate on the current line. This behavior can be controlled on the Configure | Preferences | Editing options page. The option is titled Cut/Copy/Append commands use current line when no text is selected.
When a columnar selection (Block | Select Columnar) is placed on the clipboard, any under-length lines within the selected range will be extended with Spaces to match the width of the rectangular text block. This ensures that the block will behave as expected if the Paste command is later used to insert the text at a new location. Likewise, any Tab characters within the selected region will be converted to Spaces before being placed on the clipboard.
When operating in Typeover mode on a columnar selection, the Cut command will fill the selected area with Spaces without closing up the rectangle occupied by the text.
