Where is the cut and paste option?


Recently moved from Windows to OS X.

If I select text and click right I can not find the option "cut". What I have to add parameters, or there is no such thing in OS X?

Thank you


Option cut will only be there if the text is in an editable field. Otherwise, choose copy.

    Try doing a system restore.
    I've seen a few threads you posted here in the forum and I think that there is something wrong with your operating system.
    Therefore, the easiest way to solve this would be a new installation of the operating system.

  • New items - save the cut and paste them into another image.

    I'm new to photoshop.  I am trying to record an image that I could 'cutting' a photo, so I want to paste this image on a different photo.  I learn about layers (slowly...) and I've seen several tutorials.  What I have seen/heard makes it look simple, but I'm missing something.  Worked on it for several nights with no luck.  Using Photoshop Elements 11.   Appreciate the comments, the links, the ets.  Thanks in advance.

    Once you have the choice of loan on the first image,

    Use the move tool (see the below screen shot for the moov tool), and then drag the selection to the first image on the secondary image tab.

    As soon as you place the cursor on the second image the second image tab will open and now you can place the cutting on the second image.

    It will automatically create the layer for you.

  • Impossible to use feature "cut and paste" in Word - grayed out. It can be activated?

    No changes, or I've never used to cut or paste before.  Active need to send RESUMES to companies.

    You must first select the text you want to cut or copy (by highlighting by scrolling on it with the left mouse held down).  When you do this the cut and copy options should become available (or you can press CTRL-X to cut or CTRL-C to copy).  Then go where you want and place the cursor and paste the text (or use CTRL-V).

    If this does not work, then please repost in the Word Forum at: http://social.answers.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/wordcreate/threads where experts in Word will be happy to help you.

    I hope this helps.

    Good luck!

  • Images lost during operations cut-and - paste from memory card on my computer

    I was moving pictures on my memory card in a folder in "my pictures" using the cut and paste.
    on my memory card and when I plugged my camera into my computer, the photos were in different files as the memory card has been put in two cameras; a samsung and a cannon. Some of the pictures so share the same name of the image.
    When I cut and pasted the warning came to say something in the sense of 'element already exists, replace the existing file' I clicked on "Yes to all" without thinking about it, and now I've lost the almost all of a folder of photos! And because they were cut out of the memory of the device, I can't think of a way to get back them.
    I tried many searches in my files to try and find / recover, but I have no idea where they would have gone!
    They are pictures of vacation and I really want to try to recover, any help would be greatly appreciated!

    The following freeware may be able to recover files

  • Can you help me cut and paste using PS in CC?

    Hello!  I am new to using this forum and will admit from the outset that the understanding of the technical things is not my strength.  Here's my question: I used to have PS CS5.  When I would cut and paste images to make photo cards, I would give all select, copy, make a new Document, and then paste.  From there on, I was able to move the four photos where I wanted to.  When I got a new computer, I had to pass to CC.  I had a hard time with the cut and paste process since then.  At first I couldn't get an image to appear at all on the new document, when I tried to paste something I copied, but found that I could get something, if I first flattened the image.  Now, however, what I have copy includes all of the document, and if I try to make it smaller, it's cropping the image instead of making it smaller.   Anyone has a suggestion for me to try?  Thank you very much!

    1 copy the original image, go to the document you want to paste your image in.

    2. Press CMD + v to paste in it.

    3. you can use CMD + T to resize the image to the size you want for its size. Tip: Hold SHIFT while resizing and image dimensionnera without messing up the perspective.

    4. If you want to move your image after it sizing, press 'A', the abbreviation for the move tool and just move it to the location you would like. Make sure you have the layer with the image that you want to move selected in the layer panel.

  • Cut and paste in Indesign style names

    Hello everyone, I'm new to this forum.

    I have a question about the cut and paste in Indesign: Let's say I have two documents.

    -In the first, I have several rules of paragraph style, let's say style1, style2, style3.

    -In the second document, I have exactly the same paragraph style (style1, style2, style3) names, but different formatting rules (for example in doc1 style1 is 13 times, the same style1 doc2 is Minion 11).

    What I want to do is to copy the text of document 1, the selected paragraph style name, but not the setting shaped styles. So when I did the copied text in document 2, can I get the text automatically style with rules of formatting of document 2.

    I can't find a way to do it: I cut & spent keeping the formatting, but not the names of the styles only.

    Did someone in the face of this problem or have a solution?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Hi everyone and thanks for your help.

    I finally found out why the cut & paste has not worked for me.

    The problem was that in doc1, I put all my styles in a folder, while in doc2 (take a guess!) No.

    That was the problem. Once I put in a folder with the same name as doc1 doc2 styles, everything worked magically.

    Thank you very much!

  • 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.

  • 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?


  • Cut and paste multiple selections to separate the layers?

    Whether you have multiple selected items with text scrolling.

    Something like this:


    Anyway, is to have, in this example, all cut and pasted to their own layer icons?

    If you do not have these limits of selection around the individual images, then the crop option & straightening in the Automatemenu would do the trick.

    Of course, it works on a contact sheet or a screenshot of thumbnail images.

    Edit: This would create a separate image for each icon. You would then load these documents into a pile or to import the files as layers.
