    TL, DR: Select any text and press Control + K to cut it. To paste it in its new location, press Control + Y. Note that this cuts, rather than copies, the text. Besides, it won’t remove what is currently on the “main” clipboard. :)

      Thank you. Incredible that they don't bother to explain what "Kill" and "Yank" mean on this "helpful" page.

    This is pretty cool info (I wasn't aware of this functionality in osx). However I find the page layout a little odd here.

    Don't get me wrong, the graphics are sweet. But they are sort of overly-big, as is everything on the page. I mean, there's really only about 20 lines of text all up, but it's been massively extended by the page layout. Looks nice, maybe overkill though?

    There also seems to be too much white space between the third party app examples. Also it might be worthwhile to provide links to those tools :)

    No comment on the huge unrelated product CTA at the bottom... But I like the look and feel overall of the site. And yeah, handy info. Thanks for sharing!

    Speaking of clipboards, does anyone else use the Alfred Powerpack "clipboard history" feature? I do not know how I'd live without it -- easy shortcut access to everything you've copied within whatever timeframe you want.

    You have to pay for the Powerpack but it's a one-time license and in my opinion so worth it!

    Maybe I'm missing something, but can someone explain how is CMD-K and CMD-Y different than CMD-X and CMD-V, in terms of what they allow me to do?

      btw, it's CTRL-K and CTRL-Y

      I think the functionality is identical to CMD-X and CMD-V. It's just for those times when you're saving something in your clipboard, but want to copy something else too. idk

        Apparently it doesn't affect what's currently on your clipboard, which is nice.

          I actually ended up using this last night! Had something on my clipboard. Got to where I wanted to paste it and went "Crap, I have to move that other text first...". Worked perfectly!

            Thank you Brandon and Adam! That helps a lot. Now I understand and have a context. What a great extra feature.
