    You're not really saving anything on the clipboard when you are copying something. The iPad is only keeping the last thing you copied in a virtual space (for lack of better words). Whatever you copied last is the only thing that will be available to paste and you can paste anywhere there is an entry field.

    Every time you copy something, you overwrite whatever there was on the clipboard - and there is no recalling that erased clip.

    Hope this clarifies.

    There is a very useful app in the AppStore called "Clipboard Manager and History "where you can save the last things copied . I tried it out some time ago when it was free and find it very handy. I don't remember how much it was sold .

    Well I've learnt something new, it's £1.49 here in the UK so I'll be trying it out, thank you.
