    Copy and paste

    When forming LaTex expressions, is it possible to copy and paste ?

    It is always possible to copy and paste.

    Please give more context. Are you talking about the forum or an external program? Do you want to copy an image of a formula or the LaTeX text that generates it?

    In our messaging system.
    If I have two LaTex expressions to input that are pretty much the same, I would like to be able to copy and paste and then make the minor alterations.
    There don't seem to be any copy and paste buttons available ?

    When one clicks on "Reply to Thread", the forum opens a built-in mini-editor where one types the response. This editor offers typical basic functionality, in particular, keyboard shortcuts. It understands Home, End, Shift-arrows to select text, Ctrl-C to copy, Ctrl-V to paste, etc. You can also select Edit | Copy from the menu in your browser after selecting some text.

    Thanks, I've not been in the habit of using keyboard shortcuts, so this had not occured to me.
    It should save me some work in the future !
