Saving to the Clipboard

Sometimes when you are using apps, you get the option to "Save to the Clipboard." So you click save and then wonder where is the clipboard? How do I access what I just saved? What "Save to the Clipboard" really means on the iPad is Copy. So to retrieve what you copied, you have to go to another app on the iPad and click Paste. This will take the item on the clipboard and copy it into the new app, like Notes. However, the clipboard can only store one copied item at a time. If you 'Save to the Clipboard' twice in a row without pasting, then you lost the first item. When you go to paste you will only get the most recent item you saved.
