You can leave text in its present location and move a copy of it to a different location. This is useful when you have a special paragraph that you want to repeat in a number of locations.
To copy a block of text:
1. Define the 'region'.
2. Type the M-C instruction to 'copy' the 'region'.
3. Move the cursor to the place where you want the copied text to go.
4. Type ^Y to 'yank' the text.
A copy of the text moves from the 'kill' buffer and appears at its new location.
