Seriously? It's a Windows clipboard thing. Get a Mac, they have handled
it better since the late 80s.

Cut and copy go to the same place.

Quick question on a setting in Word.

If I cut a selected area then paste (without copying first), Word pastes
in the area that I cut. This is especially annoying if I copy a
something first then cut something else. How can I turn this off? I shut
off "Use Smart cut and paste" but that didn't do anything.
