I've got to go with David here. Get away from those line commands if
you can re-train yourself just a little. It slows me down to get over
to the numbers and key line commands, and as others have said, this
only works within the same member.

I open the two members I want to edit. As an added bonus, If your
display is wide enough to show both members at the same time, drag the
tab heading to the right edge of the LPEX editor. When the outline of
the member shows, you drop, and you now can look at both members.

Now I go to the member I want to copy from and use alt+L to select the
first line, alt-down arrow to select all the lines I want, and
alt-left arrow (or right arrow) to change to the other member being
edited. Then I position my cursor to where I want the copied lines to
go and use alt-C to copy the lines.

All this without taking my hands off the keyboard, after getting both
members loaded in the editor. I usually open the source member in
browse so I don't accidentally alter it.

Once highlighted you can use alt-D to delete, and alt-M to move as
well. Works between and within members in the LPEX editor.

I am on V7 version of some sort. I have been using this at least since V6.

But there's still LPEX that works great! I can't believe that people are trying to use SEU commands or copy paste for whole lines! How on earth can that work? When you paste the lines don't they paste all over the place?

Unless V7 has changed everthing, select your lines to copy with ALT + L at the first and last line. For the last line, a little nudge on the mouse with the left button also selects the block of lines. Then, in your other RPG, ALT + C copies the lines.

Danger ! If the copied RPG is in edit mode, ALT + M moves them into the other source and you may not notice straight away!

Another tip, if you lose your selected lines, eg you select and hit control home, you find them again with ALT + pageup/down. Don't forget ALT + U to unselect.

Click right in the source and look at the Select and selected options. It will give you all the keyboard combinations.
