Dragging and Dropping Within a LibreOffice Document
There are many options for moving or copying objects using drag-and-drop. Text sections, drawing objects, graphics, form controls, hyperlinks, cell ranges, and many more can be moved or copied with the mouse.
Note that the mouse pointer displays a plus sign when copying and an arrow when creating a link or hyperlink.
|Creating a link|
If you press Ctrl or Shift+Ctrl while releasing the mouse button, you can control whether the object is copied, moved, or a link is created.
|If you drag objects out of the Navigator, you can specify in the submenu of the Navigator's Drag Mode icon whether to copy the object, insert it as a link or insert it as a hyperlink.|
|You can cancel a drag-and-drop operation in LibreOffice at any time by pressing the Esc key before releasing the mouse button.|
