Dragging and Dropping Text

If all you want to do is move some text from one place on a page to another, it's often faster to drag and drop the text.

To drag and drop text:

  1. Select the text you want to move (Figure 4.2).
    Figure 4.2

    Figure 4.2 Begin dragging and dropping text by selecting it.

  2. Move the cursor over the selected text.

    The cursor changes from an I-beam to an arrow.

  3. Click and hold your mouse button over the selected text, and drag it to its new location, releasing the mouse button when the cursor is where you want the text (Figure 4.3).
    Figure 4.3

    Figure 4.3 When you release the mouse button, the text moves to where you dropped it.

    The text moves to its new home.
