Copy and paste has the following pros and cons

  • Easy
  • File size increases.
  • Sometimes the object cannot be edited.
  • Does not update when source updates.
The destination application determines what format is used to place the source content into the destination document. You can usually control this process by using the powerful Paste Special command in the Edit menu to experiment with other formats for the content.
