When you press this softkey, the vertical softkey bar changes. The

selected.
A limit is applied to the block area which can be selected. When the
limit is reached the following warning appears in the dialog line:
"Buffer limit for selection reached".

The softkey pastes the cut or copied block from the buffer into the text
in front of the cursor position.

The following search methods are available:
to the beginning of the part program (cursor on the first
character in the program),
