Paste Elements Submenu

You can paste an element from the  Enterprise Architect Clipboard or the MS Windows clipboard into a diagram, either as a hyperlink to the original element or as a new element. The Enterprise Architect clipboard takes precedence, so you must clear that clipboard before you can paste from the MS Windows clipboard.
