Cut and paste text

sorry if this is a stupid question. I’m new to easel and making my up the long steep beginning of the learning curve. With the holidays coming on, I thought I’d learn how to use my machine and its software by carving simple gifts. I want to carve a poem on a piece of wood as a gift. Try that I may, I cannot figure out how to import the poem (operator error/ignorance undoubtedly), so I thought that I’d simply cut the text and paste it into easel… not so fast!!! I can’t find a ‘paste’ button. Can someone tell me if it is possible to cut-n-paste test, and if so, HOW???
