    So the thing you just copied doesn't appear at all?

    When you copy something, it saves it so you can paste it. It remains available to paste until you copy or cut something else. It's normal function.

    It's normal behavior, in just about every program on every platform, except for MS Excel. :eek: Get used to it....

    Then you didn't copy something else. Each copy overwrites the previous one.

    Why would you want to have it clear? Then everytime you want to paste something more than once you'd have to go back and copy it, over and over again.
