Cut, Copy and Paste

The Blue Pencil toolset provides the ability to cut and copy an existing Blue Pencil key to a custom clipboard. The key can then be pasted back into the scene at different times. The Blue Pencil clipboard is completely independent of Maya's native clipboard and copying to one will not override the contents of the other.

Cut, copy and paste operations act on the key at the current time and can be performed through the Keys submenu (Blue Pencil->Keys) or from the Toolbox UI:

Cut the key at the current time and copy it to the clipboard.
Copy the key at the current time to the clipboard.
Paste the contents of the clipboard at the current time.

Note: Blue Pencil keys should only be cut, copied and pasted using the Blue Pencil toolset. Other method may result in lost data.
