there are a whole bunch of commands related to Alt-R - do a right-click in the editor and look at the "Selected" item - in there you see lots you can do with the selection - copy, move, delete, overlay with it - my favorite, actually, upper and lower case.

These are a different set from the regular Windows ones of Ctrl-X, V, C - seems sometimes things get mixed amongst them - but they're great tools.

Besides Google and F4, right-click is your friend!
