    Hi guys,
    I just purchased a new ipad and I'm just trying to find my way around it, how to effectively use it. There are lots of learning to do.

    Recently, I saved some documents from Safari Internet, the pop up massage said the documents were saving to the clipboard. Unfortunately, I have been unable to find the clipboard in the ipad. Can anyone please help how to find the clipboard.

    Thanks
    Meagher

    Hi, meagher! Welcome to iPF!

    The clipboard is some place in your iPad memory where you can save data, but only one at a time. If you copy something, it's saved to the clipboard and you're able to paste it somewhere else. As soon as you copy something else, the data you saved first are gone (overwritten). You can't open clipboard like you would open an app or document. When you've saved something to the clipboard, you have to open another document/app,... and paste the latest content there.

    Hope that helps.

    Hi and welcome to the forum!

    I have just deleted 3 of your other posts that were duplicates of this one.

    Please do not do this-it's confusing to follow with multiple posts asking the same thing. It's also against forum rules!

    Thanks!
