    Soliciting Ideas

    I was taking a shower <img src=/S/shy.gif border=0 alt=shy width=15 height=15> and I thought of this idea:

    We now have a clipboard that can hold more than one item, but how do we paste the 2nd item placed on the clipboard, how about the 3rd or the 12th? Is there a direct way to paste these items as we go along working in MS-Word?

    This way should be keyboard shortcut, so as to speed things up. Reaching for the mouse is going to make this slow when you have multiple paste operations.

    OK if there is no way to do it, could we write a VBA code snippet to do the job? Is the clipboard [b]<font color=blue>

    Word 97 only places a single item on the clipboard. Word 2000 has a clipboard toolbar, and Word 2002/2003 a clipboard task pane to let you select the item you want to paste.

    According to How to use the Office 2000 Clipboard, the Office clipboard is not exposed in VBA.
