Let’s face it: Copy and paste form the cornerstone of the personal-computer religion. If you couldn’t copy and paste, where would word processing be? Where would Photoshop be? Where would college students be?
It works with regions just as it does with fields in FileMaker, objects in a drawing program, or icons in the Finder. Select the region or regions you want to copy, press
-C (or choose Edit → Copy), click in the beat ruler to indicate where you want the Clipboard regions to reappear, and then press
-V (or choose Edit → Paste). The cut or copied music appears at the position of the Playhead.
Since the regions always reappear in the tracks from which you cut or copied them, you can’t paste into a different track.
