Import from clipboard

Importing from clipboard is very similar to importing from any text based files like *.txt, *.csv or *.*.

Before importing data from clipboard, prepare relevant import data: in Excel, Notepad, Word, or any other editor (spreadsheet) choose the portion of data you want to import into CutLogic 2D, select them, then click the selected data with the right mouse button and choose Copy in popup menu or press Ctrl+C. Data saved in this way is always at your disposal for import.
