Menu: Edit > Paste
Default Shortcut Key: Ctrl+V
Macro function: Paste()
The Paste command inserts the text from the current clipboard at the location of the text cursor in the current file. 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 stream text (Edit | Select Stream) is being pasted, the clipboard text is inserted as if it had been typed from the keyboard. That is, the character at the text cursor is pushed along as far as is needed to accommodate the new text.
If columnar text (Edit | Select Columnar) is being pasted, the method of insertion is sensitive to the current edit mode. In Insert mode text will be pushed right to accommodate the size of the rectangular block being inserted. In Typeover mode the clipboard text will overwrite any text which may exist in the destination rectangle.
The placement of the text cursor after a Paste operation can be controlled with an option on the Configure | Preferences | Editing options page. The option is titled Stay at insertion point when Pasting.
