    Whilst working on Office for Mac 2004 in Word my cut and paste function has stopped working! This is a major problem as on a Macbook there's no room to drag text across.
    Any help gratefully received...

    Hi,
    AM either right clicking on an Apple mouse, or using the cut/paste icons on the toolbar. Is this significant?

    Hmmm. The reason I asked which keyboard shortcut you were using was because you have to use :apple: and not control.

    Hmm, that's strange. Control-click seems to work...

    My girlfriend, whose problem this is, now says it's only a problem when she is trying to cut & paste from web pages into Word documents, for example for university stuff. It used to work but now doesn't... sorry - she led me to believe that the whole cut&paste function was gone.

    Has she tried using two fingers on the trackpad and clicking instead of an attached mouse? Perhaps the mouse has an obstruction or something.
