Cut and paste tabs and "returns"?


In an earlier version of pages, I could copy and paste tabs, as well as breaks line or "go back". I use this feature a lot then the processor who ends up going inside a spreadsheet and visca versca.

In the most recent version of Pages, I think that cutting and pasting of the tabs is available in all simply copy the tab character and paste it into the Find/Replace dialog box. (And a shortcut of 'Option-tab' inserts a "tab" character in the Find/Replace dialog box.)

But cut and paste newlines or line returns no longer seem to work (or fact is old keyboard shortcut 'Option-return'.  This feature has gone completely outside, or modified or?

Anyone know?

Thank you!


Just tested the latest version of the Pages.

Option-tab peut be used in the dialog box search to search for a TAB

I can select a tab in the text and paste it into the search box and it is as expected

Shift + return produced a line break, and this also can be copied and pasted into the Find dialog box

I can't locate 'Find & Replace"of carriage return anyway, page break, column etc. break section break that had Pages 09... most have disappeared when Apple introduced 5 Pages.

  • Cut and paste history

    If I had a dollar for every time that happened to me, I'd be a millionaire:

    I'll find myself painting on a layer with Photoshop, for noticing that I painted on the wrong layer. I so need to return perhaps history of 200 States, switch to the appropriate layer and start to re-paint again. I'm sure that a lot of artists can relate to this annoying situation.

    Is there a way I can go back, say, 200 States history and cut and paste these States on a different layer?

    Now that many States story consumes a small amount of your machines resources. However the previous content of the layer is very probably what is history, not the race. Even if it was the race if he were a wet brush Blender content would not be what you want.

    You can save the features in action your strokes to record as you paint.  If you make your mistake. You can stop the recording. Upward in history, target a correct layer and listen to your recording.

  • Cut and paste in Photoshop CS6

    No matter what I do, I can't cut and paste in photoshop cs6.

    I'm trying to copy a layer from one tab (project) to the other. I also try dragging, but it won't.

    I worked in CS5 and it has never been a problem. What I am doing wrong?


    You can try to move a layer in the layers panel to the tab of another image. (Photoroy, Yes, having anchored side by side image is called tabbed images)

    Unfortunately, it is not possible from the layers panel, but it is possible to the image itself.

    If you do not have the move selected tool, press the V button, then right-click on the top of the area where your layer is to select, or drag the tab of another image, wait for the image to appear, and then release the mouse button; or use layer duplicated, as suggested above.

  • Cut and paste the tables of a project to another

    When cut and paste existing tables from one project to another, the weight of the line for the cell borders appear to vary randomly - some are the original line weight and some are heavier when pasted.

    I tried to unravel with the properties of the table, but without result dialog.

    Is there a quick fix or I'm better import in all subjects, then changing any theme?

    Hi Colum/Peter,

    It is not a custom table, I just need to copy a table from one project to the other.

    Blasted my developers (may the fleas of a thousand camels, etc), recently decided to change toolbars in one of our applications. As this toolbar appears in slightly different forms in about 6 tabs, I tried to update the table that shows which icon does what and cut and paste this table in all subprojects that I. Each table then needs only a minor modification for some this subproject-specific icons.

    Peter on the right track. When I cut and glued to the table, it is also stuck in a number of lines of HTML associated with styles in the other project. If I delete these lines, the table will appear as it should.

    Thanks for the quick reply

  • How to cut and paste the image of the body of the received email

    I'm trying to cut and paste an image included in the bottom of an email and insert it into a Word document so that you can size and print. I can highlight, cut it with Ctrl C, paste it into the document Word with Ctrl V, but the image doesn't show, although the picture frame appears when I click on the place where the photo was pasted. Framework, but empty, no image. Any thoughts?

    Thanks to everyone for their help.

    The problem has been resolved - to try and finally understand everything.

    If you encounter this problem, it is perhaps because, unless you know the file format of the inserted picture, programs can not figure it out for you. Place your cursor on the image, right click and save the image under a .jpeg instead of simply copying. Then work with the file .jpeg in any photo management program you use normally - or even insert it in Word.

  • I created a file user.js to cut and paste. The site I'm making this function is a "moodle" and so the URL change ++. Is there a way I can allow cut and paste, which is not specific URL?

    It does not work.

    You can have a degree of capability.policy.allowclipboard.sites pref, so in your case, the second line with will replace the first with the server.

    If you need more than one URL, separate by spaces, but in your case, you don't need the mozilla site that is indicated as an example.

But I want to avoid having to go to Messages, search for image copy and then turn over Messages to paste.  I didn't need the script to automatically display the message, simply cut and paste of the pictures folder so that I am in Messages in a new message to the existing message thread (it makes no sense to me).

  • keep the formula when cut and paste cells

    I have a workbook for card games where we're going to turn seats/tables throughout the day (6 moves in total).  I have reproduced the a sheet that has cells with formulas to pick up names among the other sheets in the workbook.  When I cut and paste them, for my seat of update, the formula of data changes.  IE:, journal name game 1, cell #A1 said = name cell A2 of sheet summary and so on.  When I cut and paste, it will change this formula in the correct sheet but bad cell.  Why is she even change any link to the other sheet?

    Thank you.

    It is difficult to follow what you describe here.  By workbook (not a term of numbers), it seems you're saying that worksheet. But in numbers, you can't have a sheet that contains cells. The cells are take-away in an array of numbers that is located on a sheet.  You can duplicate a table of numbers and you can also duplicate a sheet of numbers, but it is not too clear what you're doing.  How about providing a screenshot of what happens?
