Paste

To copy an object from a buffer (or clipboard) to a file. In word processing, blocks of text are moved from one place to another by cutting and pasting. When you cut a block of text, the word processorremoves the block from your file and places it in a temporary holding area (a buffer). You can then paste the material in the buffer somewhere else.

Modern operating systems, such as Microsoft Windows, allow you to cut an object from one application and paste it into another. Depending on how the object is pasted, it can be either linked or embedded.
