The clipboard is a temporary area in memory for data that you cut or copy. From the clipboard, you can paste the cut or copied data to another location or into another document.

The selection can be a text, a text in a cell, a cell or a range of cells. The selection can then be pasted at a new location in the MedCalc spreadsheet, or in a different Windows spreadsheet (e.g. Excel) or word processor.

When used in a graph window, the whole graph is placed as a metafile on the clipboard. This metafile can be copied into a Word document, a PowerPoint presentation, and many other Windows programs. By default, the graph is copied onto the clipboard with a height/width ratio of 2/3. If you want to use the height/width ratio of the graph window, you must select the option Use window aspect ratio in the Options box.
