Using the Clipboard
Similar to clipboards in other Windows programs, Composer's clipboard is a place off the screen where you can temporarily save some region of a score. Later you can paste the temporarily saved region of the score into a new location in the same score, or in another score.
Note that Composer's clipboard is used only for moving regions of a score within Composer. Composer's clipboard does not support transferring music notation or performance data, nor bitmap images, to and from other Windows applications. There is one exception: you can use the clipboard to exchange lyrics between Composer and an external text editor.
Instructions for using the clipboard are described in the topics that follow.
