OpenOffice.org Writer: Copy Text Without Actually Copying It

Posted By April On June 5, 2011 @ 12:29 PM In OpenOffice,Uncategorized | 3 Comments

“What? Did I read that right?”

Yes, you did read it correctly and yes, we can copy text without actually completing a copy / paste.

I’m quite positive that you’re eager to know how, so I’m going to get right to the business end of this tip.

  • You start by selecting the text to be copied.
  • Hold down the Ctrl key.
  • Drag the selected text to another location and release the mouse button.


A duplicate of the selected text in the location you chose without a single Ctrl + C, right-click or “Copy” button anywhere to be seen!
