Copying and Pasting Text
You can use the Windows clipboard to copy text from one text object in Composer to another, or to copy text between a text object in Composer and text that you edit in an external text editor, such as Windows NotePad. The procedure below describes how to do this.
For lyrics, you can copy multiple lyrics and verses at a time, as described in Copying and Pasting Lyrics. You can also use an external editor to prepare lyrics and then paste them into a score, as described in Editing Lyrics Using an External Text Editor.
To copy text from one object to another:
The text will be highlighted in blue. Do not click the text object a second time to "open" it for editing.

Type CTRL + C.
In the score, a blue box and a blinking caret inside it will be displayed, indicating where you could start typing text.
-- OR --
Type CTRL + V.
