The method I described is just using the normal Windows "cut and paste" routine.
You asked for an explanation of how it works, so I feel that this will get you "underway" without much bother.
Windows comes equipped with what is called a "Clipboard". Most of the time you are not aware of its existence. You can however, find it under START|PROGRAMS|ACCESSORIES|SYSTEM TOOLS|CLIPBOARD VIEWER. It will just look like a blank editing notepad screen.
Using Clipboard, you can copy an item from one part of your computer to another, whether that item is text or a picture. You copy an item by first highlighting it. Do this by placing your cursor at the start of the item, hold down the left button of your mouse and "drag" the cursor down and across the item or text until you reach the end point of the portion you wish to copy. That method will select a "portion" of the page to copy. To copy a whole page, you simply click EDIT|SELECT ALL. The section or page that is selected will then be highlighted in colour. To copy this you just press CTRL-C. It is now stored on the Clipboard even though you can't see it.
To "paste" that copied portion or page to its new location, simply place your cursor on the spot in the new location where you want to "paste" the copied item, then press CTRL-V. The item will now appear on that page.
However, to use this method in PAF, you can only copy text into screens where you can "edit". No pictures, photos, or documents with lines and columns - just text. All you need to do is follow the steps above. Say for example you have something saved in MS Word and would like to reproduce it into the NOTES section of an individual. Just open the document in MS Word, select the section, page or pages you need, press CTRL-C. Then go to your PAF program open the NOTES section for the individual concerned, select the appropriate heading, place your cursor on the blank screen, and press CTRL-V. The copied text will now be reproduced in the NOTES section for that individual. If the copied item applies to more than one individual, you just open their NOTES section and repeat the process (CTRL-V).
You can also paste into the boxes on the SOURCES edit screen using this method.
One utility program I use to make this process easier is called Classic Clipboard. This program allows you to copy a multitude of items, save them, and paste them whenever needed. Invaluable when doing repetitive entries into PAF! There is a freeware version and a shareware version. You should find the freeware version quite adequate. I have the paid shareware version as I appreciate the value of this program. Find it at: http://www.easysoftwareuk.com/classic1.htmhttp://www.easysoftwareuk.com/classic1.htm What Classic Clipboard does is extend the capabilities of the Windows Clipboard. Just using the Clipboard only, you can only have one item in there at a time. Each time you "copy" another item, it replaces the one already there. Classic Clipboard allows you to have 1,000's of items ready for pasting. It's one program I use dozens of times a day!
