  "In X10, "cut buffers" were introduced."

- (WTF) What the X10 is? (hyperlink should be added) MentalMutant (talk) 15:50, 20 December 2015 (UTC)

See e.g. wikipedia:X Window System#Origin and early development (unfortunately does not mention "cut buffers", so can't be used as a reference). -- Lahwaacz (talk) 16:01, 20 December 2015 (UTC)

In some cases?

Used for the currently selected text, even if it is not explicitly copied, and for middle-mouse-click pasting. In some cases, pasting is also possible with a keyboard shortcut.

- What is "some"? Can someone please give some pointers or some examples, it felt too vague, I think we should either remove that statement or give some explanation rather than leaving it hanging. Pickfire (talk) 15:12, 31 July 2020 (UTC)

"In some cases" means the same thing as "not in all cases". It does not work simply if the program (or the used GUI toolkit) does not have a shortcut for it. There is nothing as standard as Ctrl+C (see Keyboard shortcuts for details) so I guess the sentence will always seem vague. -- Lahwaacz (talk) 15:41, 31 July 2020 (UTC)
