Abstract

A system for copying/pasting data between two documents active on a computer system at the same time. A new menu item is made available in application context-sensitive menus every time an object (text, image, etc.) is selected in a document. This menu item allows to access a submenu with a list of documents currently open in the same application or other application active on the system. Choosing a document in the list has the effect of pasting directly the selected text or object at the end of that document. .
