Copy Paste text online between Google documents


Do you want to quickly copy paste text online between multiple Google Doc files? Now you can easily do this online just like we do offline within Microsoft Office (or on Windows) using ‘Server Clipboard’ feature. You can copy (Ctrl + C) from any opened Google Document and then paste (Ctrl + V) to any other Google Document quickly. Copied text is stored online and can be accessed anytime.

2. Goto File > New or open any existing document, spreadsheet, presentation.
3. Type any text. Select the text using mouse (or press Ctrl + A).

4. Click ‘Server Clipboard’ icon & then click ‘Copy Selection to server clipboard’. Selected text will be copied to server clipboard. You can copy multi text to this online temporary clipboard. [Tool for multiple text copy – paste]
