How to Copy and Paste
OneTouch provides the ability to copy information from anywhere in the library (including map and photo images), so that you can paste that information into a Bible note, a personal commentary, or your word processor.
Like all other modern programs, OneTouch® uses the Clipboard to support all copy and paste actions. In short, this means that you can copy materials from any reference work within the OneTouch® library to any other application that supports the paste action. Typically this has meant a word processor, but you should also consider pasting reference materials into your Bible notes (i.e., your personal commentary) within OneTouch®, as well as presentation programs (e.g., Microsoft PowerPoint).
How To Copy
In general there are two ways to copy information from OneTouch® to the Clipboard:
Remember, in Windows you can use the Start menu to open multiple applications (e.g., OneTouch® and your favorite word processor), then use the Alt+Tab keyboard shortcut to switch between applications, or simply click the button that represents the desired program (once it is running), on the Windows Task Bar (located at the bottom of the Application Desktop, to the right of the Start button).
Biblesoft's Appendable Clipboard
Normally, the Clipboard can only contain a single copied item at a time. Each time you copy an item it replaces whatever is currently on the Clipboard. Biblesoft® has extended the functionality of the Clipboard so that multiple items can be copied from OneTouch®. We call this the Appendable Clipboard. It enables you to perform multiple copy actions within OneTouch®, then switch to your word processor (or presentation package, or even a Bible note within OneTouch) and paste all of the contents of the Clipboard with a single paste action.
Please note the following items in order to get the most out of the Appendable Clipboard:
How to Paste
To paste the contents of the Clipboard, open the Bible note or other application where you wish to paste the reference materials, then use that application's paste function. (Note: OneTouch® provides a (paste) button whenever you are in edit mode in the Bible notes. Other applications often provide a similar button as well as an Edit | Paste menu item.)
How to Print
Once you have pasted materials into a word processor you can edit them (to format them differently, perhaps) and print them. Most word processors provide a print button (located on their main toolbar), as well as a File | Print menu item. Use either of these to print the desired materials.
