Regarding cut and paste, does it only perform the simple tasks you define, or can it be made to do more complex manipulation of text? For example, I would desperately like to be able to create files and folders for the purpose of comparing information gathered from various sites. Many times such info is in the form of a graph or picture. I'm having much difficulty copying complex graphs, and suspect it is not possible.
Simple graphs seem to work, if they only have one font and uniform line styles. But graphs with multiple fonts and sizes, and multiple line styles and thicknesses paste up all scrambled, abstracted.
Also, at times I have tried to copy half of a graph that is divided vertically down the middle. But there seems to be no way to keep the highlighting from crossing the vertical center line and highlighting the undesired text on the other side, to the texts termination at the margin.
So is any of this possible, or is it just meant to handle simple tasks only?
