Copying Graphics Between Documents

You can copy a graphic from one document to another by drag-and-drop. If you plan to publish your document, please observe copyright laws and obtain the consent of the authors.

  1. Open the document in which you want to insert the graphic object.

  2. Open the document from which you want to copy the graphic.

  3. Click the graphic while pressing the Alt key, to select it without executing any hyperlinks it may refer to.

  4. Keep the mouse button pressed and wait a moment while the object is copied to an internal memory.

  5. Drag the graphic into the other document. If the documents are not visible side by side, first move the mouse pointer to the button of the target document while keeping the mouse button pressed. The document in question is then displayed and you can move the mouse pointer into the document.

  6. Release the mouse button as soon as the grey text cursor indicates the position where you want to insert a copy of the picture.

  7. If the graphic is connected with a hyperlink, the hyperlink and not the graphic is inserted.
