Vista supports multiple
Cut/Copy/Paste buffers (up to 9) of 65K each.
Each time something is Cut or Copied, the data is
stored in Copybuffer 1, and also into the Windows
Clipboard. The previous contents of Copybuffer 1
is shifted into Copybuffer 2, and so on. The last
buffer is lost. The number of buffers (by
default) is 9.
To paste from buffer 1 (or the
Clipboard), just use one of the Paste Functions
as usual. To paste from the other buffers, simply
repeat the paste function as many times as
necessary to call up the data you want. For
Copybuffer 2 contains: UW00002
Copybuffer 3 contains: UW00003
Position the cursor on an input
field and press Paste (default key is ctrl-V).
The character '1' appears in right hand side of
the status bar to indicate Copybuffer 1 is being
copied to the screen. Then without pressing any
other keys or clicking the mouse, press ctrl-V
again and Copybuffer 2 will be placed on the
screen. Also, the status bar reflects the copy
buffer last used. Press again and Copybuffer 3
appears. Once more, and we wrap around to
Copybuffer 1 again.
The idea of this is to allow
multiple copybuffers in the relatively few cases
we need them, without impacting our old
