How to move text
Practice moving text
Using the below two text fields try cutting the text in the first box and pasting it into the second box. If done successfully the "Example text to cut" should be moved from the first text field to the second text field. If you copy instead of cut, "Example text to cut" would be in both text fields.

When you move something, you are taking it from one place to another place. However, when you copy something you leave what you are copying in the same place and make a copy of it in another place. In other words, copying creates a duplicate and moving does not.
