This function pastes performers that have been stored in the clipboard with the Copy function. If nothing is stored in the clipboard the Paste function will be dim. Select Paste from the Edit menu and the following will display:

Paste with the same matching order

Pastes the performers into current count of drill and maintains their same identity (matching order) as the performers they were copied from.

Paste with different matching order

This option will only be available if performers were selected on the currently displayed count prior to choosing Paste. The selected performers will be performers 3D will try to move (match) the pasted performers into. Matching Controls will display in the right area of the Paste Control Panel. Matching Controls are used to match the positions of the pasted shape to their respective performers in the drill. On the field display matching lines are drawn between the positions of the pasted shape and the selected performers. Often the positions in the line are matched correctly or simply need to be flipped over to be correct using the Flip button. If more matching control is necessary, clicking the Clear button will clear all of the matching lines for you to replace manually.

Paste as new performers

This option will enter the performers as new performers. This is typically done at count 0 of the drill. New performers are rarely entered at any other count. The only time you might want to enter new performers at a count other than count 0 is when you are starting a new drill by creating your first time performers at set #2 and plan to chart backwards to set #1.

Mirroring / Less Options

Clicking this button expands the Paste Control Panel to show Mirroring Options, which allow you to Invert paste shape vertically, horizontally, and across mid stage. This inverts the copied shape prior to pasting it on the current count of drill.
