 +===== Paste types =====
 +
 +The meaning of “cut and paste” is less obvious for a music editing program than it is for something like a word processor in which the letters and words go in a simple linear order. Accordingly,​ Rosegarden'​s notation editor offers several different types of paste operation, as well as separate **Edit → Cut** (****Ctrl**+**X****) and **Edit → Cut and Copy** (****Ctrl**+**Shift**+**X****) functions. Cut and close means that when you “cut” a segment the space left by the segment disappears from the track by moving forward all the events later in the track.
 +
 +{{:​doc:​rg-pastedialog.png|Rosegarden'​s paste-type dialog}}
 +
 +The types of paste operation are:
 +
 +**Restricted**
 +
 +Requires an existing gap (containing nothing but rests) of enough duration to completely contain the clipboard'​s contents. The contents are pasted into the gap. If there is no gap long enough, the paste is not carried out.
 +
 +This is the default paste type. The shortcut for this operation is **Ctrl**+**V** .
 +
 +**Simple**
 +
 +Erases enough events to make a gap long enough to paste into, and then pastes into that. The pasted events therefore completely replace any existing ones in the time covered by the paste.
 +
 +**Open and Paste**
 +
 +The opposite of Cut and Close. Makes room for the paste by moving all of the subsequent events further towards the end of the composition.
 +
 +**Note Overlay**
 +
 +Carries out a paste in the way that it would happen if you entered each of the notes in the clipboard yourself using the notation editor: if there are other notes overlapping with them, the new or existing notes will be split into ties appropriately.
 +
 +**Matrix Overlay**
 +
 +Carries out a paste in the way that it would happen if you entered each of the notes in the clipboard yourself using the matrix editor: the notes presently in the way of the paste will be ignored, allowing the new notes to overlap arbitrarily with them.
 +
 +All of these take effect at the current position of the insert cursor on the current staff. You can choose all the paste varieties through **Edit → Paste...** (****Ctrl**+**Shift**+**V****). You can also change the default paste type in this dialog.
