Computer Copy and Paste in the real Patient Note!

I was just wondering when you are typing the Pt note can you use copy and paste?
Would save some time when filling out the the physical findings and history that point to the diagnosis. I started practicing using copy and paste to save some time but need to know if I should stop. Please help! Thank you!

You cannot use copy paste in real exam. So don't practice it.

Sorry Laura but I gave it on 26 July in chicago only. I did copy and paste and it did work. I have no idea why it didn't work with you. I gave it a day after so ideally it should be same with me but I used it and work very well specially with this new format with slow typing how can you type so fast.
