Tip

Cumulative Paste

Ever been working in a Notes document and you want to copy multiple items to
the clipboard? This tip will let you copy multiple items to the clipboard in
one go, and then paste the results into a single location.
For example, you have a 5 paragraph document,

Paragraph 1
Paragraph 2
Paragraph 3
Paragraph 4
Paragraph 5

and you want to quickly create a summary, that is Paragraph 1, 3 and 5.

Here's how you can do it very quickly,

Select Paragraph 1 and press Ctrl-Ins
Select paragraph 3 and press Ctrl-Shift-Ins
Select paragraph 5 and press Ctrl-Shift-Ins

Now go to the location where you want to paste the summary and press Shift-Ins,
and voila, you have paragraphs 1,3 and 5.
