Cutting, Copying & Pasting

When developing a web page in FrontPage, you may find it necessary to cut and copy text and images. Once an image or text is cut, it no longer appears in its original location. When an image or text is copied, it is not erased from its original location but appears simultaneously in its new and original locations.

WARNING: If you are cutting or copying an image or linked text with a relative link (e.g., ../../Images/sample.gif), when pasted into a different document, the link may be incorrect and the image or link will be broken. For an alternative method which can preserve relative links, refer to Inserting a File.
