Is there a way to do this? Or do I need to download a program (any suggestions?)

Basically I need to:

Copy (ctrl-C) 3 to 4 different things on the same page...then Paste (ctrl-P) those into a different document. Right now I am going one by one...but it's a huge pain. If i could copy 3 different items (without needing to paste) then paste them in different locations (without needing to copy in between) that would be amazing. I know this can be done.

Does anyone do this?

You'll likely need to download something, I know there is a ton of clipboard apps out there, shareware and freeware.

The Office 2003 clipboard has options to paste more than one clipboard item. However, I'm not certain that it works well outside the Office family. A third-party application might be more versatile. What is it that you're copying and pasting?

imagine copying a customer's order #, email address, shipping address...then pasting their order #, email address, shipping address into a partners 'order form'.

This is the only way to process the order, by copying & pasting these 3 separate things into their system...all in separate boxes.

right now i do:
(using ctrl-C / ctrl-V)
copy/paste
copy/paste
copy/paste

I aspire to do:

copy copy copy
paste paste paste

much easier that way. big pain in the a** right now...

You may want to look into macro software that is often used to automate tasks like that.
