Hi, guys...I'm looking for an improvement to the copy/paste
functionality in XP Pro.

Basically, I want to create a queue of "copies" that I can select from
when I paste. I'm creating a bunch of help topics in XMetal and I want
to copy both the Prolog Index block and the See also set of links from
one topic to another, then edit.

Right now, if I copy the prolog set, I loose the Related links set and
vice versa.
