The tag is used for the clipboard actions Copying and Pasting.

This should be merged with the existing tag, and synonymised so that future users can find the right tag.

I think we should also merge a couple of more tags into :

Some might have to be cleanup up though.

  • copy can be about commands like xcopy32 or ɪꜱᴏ burning. In that case they don’t involve a clipboard. Commented Jan 10, 2017 at 3:57

I'm not sure "clipboard" should be the primary term. People think of "clipboard" as a system utility that can be used within or across applications. A big portion of the copy and copy-paste questions relate to things like propagating cell contents in a spreadsheet. Copy-paste is more generic than clipboard.

  • Most, if not all spreadsheet applications these days support cell propagation in a pretty standardised way - shouldn't it be enough to tag with the software they're using without needing a tag for the specific feature?
