Cut and copy and paste sans keyboard

Discussion in 'Apple' started by Kai Großjohann, May 25, 2005.

  1. Is there a way to do copy and paste or cut and paste via the mouse
    alone, without using Clover-X, Clover-C, Clover-V?

    Well, there is the edit menu, but I'm looking for something quicker,
    such as the X11 method where dragging also selects, and middle-click
    pastes.

    Perhaps dragging with the left mouse button, then clicking the right
    mouse button before releasing the left mouse button, could do copy,
    and the middle mouse button could do paste?

    You probably know this already, but, just in case:
    You can move (cut/paste) a selection by just dragging it.
    You can copy (copy/paste) a selection by option-dragging it.
