Cut and Paste

Cutting and pasting works in the same manner as copy and delete. A figure or group of figures must be selected to use one of these application functions. After a selection has been made, touch and press the Drawing Canvas for ~1 second or press on the Contextual Menu Button in the Top Toolbar to bring up the Contextual Menu, as shown below:

The Cut command removes the figure from the Drawing Canvas and adds it to the clipboard. The Paste button directs TouchDraw to paste the contents of the clipboard into the drawing. Pasting the clipboard contents multiple times into the Drawing Canvas causes the figure(s) to be placed in slightly offset positions as shown below.

   

The Paste Submenu can be used to perform additional pasting actions.

   

To paste a figure in the same exact location, open the Contextual Menu, press on the Expand Button (blue circle with right facing arrow) located next to the Paste option, and then tap on the Paste in Place option.

To see the pasted figure select the figure and drag in any direction. In the example below, the pasted figure is dragged to the right.

   

To paste the style of a figure, open the Contextual Menu, press on the Expand Button to the right of the Paste option, and then tap on the Paste Style option. Refer to the Paste Style section of this documentation to learn more.

To paste multiple instance of a figure into the clipboard, open the Contextual Menu, press on the Expand Button to the right of the Paste option, and tap on the Paste Multiple Copies option.

   

Multiple pastes of the clipboard content will cause each figure to be placed in slightly offset positions as shown below:

Press on the Back button in the upper left of the Paste Submenu to return to the Contextual Menu.
