How can I copy/paste text from one page to another?

I feel like I am taking crazy pills... is there really no way to copy a text box (or group) from one page to another while creating books in Aperture 3?  Lets say I have my entire book laid out and I want to add one paragraph at the end on one page which will push text and photos down a half page or so... in most programs for the last decade or so they added really cool functionality... cut/paste...  It seems like the apple developers are aware of it because they are in the context menus but they don't work on text, only photo boxes.  Additionally, you can copy/paste text but it erases all formatting.
Seriously, am I missing something?  I have trouble believing that they can't include this function.
Anyone else have this issue?

Update... it seems to only happen with text boxes which I create.  So when I try an existing theme I can cut/copy/paste just fine, but in that same theme if you edit the layout and add a new text box, I can't copy paste it anywhere... the options are in the menu but nothing happens.
Thoughts? Solutions?
I am running 3.4.3 on a MacBook Pro OS X 10.8.3

  • How can I copy cell formatting from one range to another?

    How can I copy cell formatting from one range to another, including text fonts, colours, borders, etc., so that, for example, I can reuse a formatted reconciliation table again in different parts of a sheet?

    Hi George,
    Wayne found the Spinning Beachball of Death, and you will find it too.
    Numbers is not good at handling large datasets. Might I suggest that you group your data into smaller sets (each month, perhaps?) and save each group in a separate Numbers document. Numbers will not link between documents, but you could have a summary Table within each document. Then comes the "clunky" bit of copying all those summary tables into a master document where you do the final processing of the data.

  • I have no problems copying iMovie Events from one Mac to another, however, how can I copy iMovie Projects from one Mac to another?

    I have no problems copying iMovie Events from one Mac to another, however, how can I copy iMovie Projects from one Mac to another?  Any help will be appreciated.  Thank you.

    This should give you some good insight, I'd probably store them on an External HD on the old machine and then just drag and drop to the new machine.

  • How can I copy GPS information from one image to another?

    I bought a Canon S100 specifically for its GPs and movie capability.  On a recent vacation, I used the S100 and a Nikon D300.  In cases where images were taken with both cameras in approximately the same place, I would like to copy the GPS information from the S100 CR2 files to the D300 NEF files.  Does anyone know how to do this or if there is any plugins that will do it?

    The added benefit of using GeoSetter to copy the information from one photo to another, is that you can see where every already-tagged photo is on a Google map to make sure the location is actually correct.  Sometimes the camera clock is off a few seconds or minutes and you can easily figure how what offset to use by watching where the existing photos show on the map.
    Using the MS Pro Photo Tools to generate a track from the existing S100 photos and then using that track in GeoSetter to assign the rest, with interpolation enabled, seems like the best course of action if the S100 track information is no longer available.
    When using an external program to Geotag images that are already in LR, to be safe you should first save all the metadata to XMP files in the folder you’re going to tag, then exit LR, then geotag the photos, then restart LR and read information from all the XMP files.
    Another benefit of GeoSetter is that you can assign the locality information to the photos that already have just coordinates in them.

  • How can I copy a track from one session to another?

    I want to copy an entire track (strip setting and audio/midi) from one session to another. The only option I can seem to find is to bounce or export as audio.
    Is there any way to do this besides copy/paste the strip setting, copy/paste the software instrument, copy/paste the midi?

    Why don't you save the channel strip (including the Software instrument) as a preset and insert it in the new session? Doesn't affect Volume and panning though unless it is automated. Then you could copy+paste the Automation. Audio and Midi files have to be copied+pasted.

  • How Can I Copy an database from one server to another ?

    Hi All,
    I need to copy an existing database from one server to another server. I want to maintain all the settings from the source database.
    I´m not used to Oracle database and i´d be glad for any help.
    How can I do this ? Do I need to backup and restore in the other server ? Do I need to copy files from one server to another ?
    Any help will be really appreciated.
    Carlos.

    I think a simpler approach, other than using RMAN, is to do a database export from the source and then import them into the target database. But you will need to do some ground work on the target, i.e, create database, tablespaces, and schemas (with their name the same as those in the source database.)

  • How can I copy some info from one contact to another?

    If I have, for example, 4 people who live in the same address, how can I get all the address fields from one contact and copy to the others?
    Tks

    You can duplicate an address card by copying and pasting.
    Select an address card in the Address Book window.
    Choose Edit > Copy, then choose Edit > Paste.
    Then edit the names and other details or set up the 4 cards and copy and paste each field as required

  • How can I copy-paste text from Firefox to Apple Mail preserving all formatting? It works with Safari but not with Firefox, otherwise I'd pick Firefox

    I have a very big list of correspondents to whom I often send articles.
    I cannot copy them from Firefox and paste them onto Apple Mail because they look WEIRD and not at all like the original. Most formatting disappears.
    I do not encounter the same problem with Safari, and THAT is one of the two reasons I am forced to use it even if it gives me lots of problems.
    The other one is that Safari 5 has a built-in RSS reader, which is essential for my work.
    If you could manage to have those two things working, I'd pick Firefox in a second and advertise the fact to thousands who would do the same.

    Try one of these feed readers if the build-in Firefox reader doesn't suit you.

    more info needed.
    thank you.

    Your first post said "One of the old posts I found said to import it" without indicating what IT was. Telling us it's an htm file doesn't tell us much.
    What is the question here?

    You will be able to do copy & paste when 3.0 comes out this summer.

    No. You would make changes to the address book on your PC and then sync via iTunes.

  • Can Pages copy text from one page to another automatically?

    Can Pages automatically copy text from one page to another?
    For example recurring text in a document e.g. addressee details or a date (not today's date).
    I want to type the topic title of one letter and have it automatically filled into the correct field in the next page which will be a letter to a different recipient.
    The letter text will be different for each recipient so mail merge probably won't work.
    Thanks
    Andy

    Thanks that worked great!!!(for the first line)
    Now why wont it populate more than the one other text field?
    F.Lic.Table1.Row1.agt_ssn_lic.rawValue = xfa.event.newText;
    F.PAGE3.agt_ssn_1.rawValue = xfa.event.newText;

  • How can I move a photo from one project to another

    How can I move a photo from one project to another without creating a duplicate so I have the same photo in two projects.
    I seems to me in the past when I moved the photo from project 1 to project 2, I would get a number showing the # of photos being moved and you could drag and drop in the 2nd folder and the photos would disappear from project 1 and show up in project 2. is there a setting I am missing.  Now when I drag and drop the photo no red # shows up and the photo stays in project 1 and also shows up in project 2 apparently creating a duplicate.
    Any suggestion?

    Now when I drag and drop the photo no red # shows up and the photo stays in project 1 and also shows up in project 2 apparently creating a duplicate.
    The projects are the basic containers.  Each image and all its versions are in exactly one project.
    You can use an image in many albums, without duplicating it, also in many products like books, screensaver, slideshows.  But the projects are the basic structure of the library and you cannot have the same image in two different project, without duplicating it by storing the same original image files twice. Use albums to organize your library thematically.
    Sorry, I misread your question.   Dragging an image file between projects should move the image and all its versions to the other project.  Aperture should only duplicate the image, if you hold down the alt/options key while dragging and move the image otherwise.
    Which Aperture version are you using? And which MacOS X version?  Is your profile signature "MacBook Pro with Retina display, Mac OS 9.2.x, Aperture 3.5.1" still valid?
    In Aperture 3.6 on MacOS X 10.10.1 dragging between projects is still working as expected:

    How can I move a clip from one movie to another?

    If it's just a clip, you can simply go to the other project and Add Media/From Files and Folders.
    But if it's a part of your movie -- say a sequence of clips or a clip that's had effects added to it -- you technically can't cut and paste betweeen projects in Premiere Elements. However, some people have been able to do it using the third party program ClipMate, available online.
