Example: "The editor cut the third paragraph and pasted it later in the document."

The Cut command removes a selected object and copies it to the clipboard. It performs both a Delete and Copy operation at the same time. After data has been cut from a document, it can be pasted into another similar document. Objects like text, images, audio, and video selections can be cut. However, only editable items can be cut since the command removes the selection from the document.
