Oops, I just saw this...

Copy/Paste works well, but the sequence:

  - mouse move to highlight the word (lose your insertion point in  
the line you're working on)
  - copy (two keystrokes)
  - move mouse back to line
  - paste (two keystrokes)

is not as fast as ScriptPaint:

  - mouse hover over word to copy (cursor stays in place)
  - Cntrl Space (two keystrokes)

but copy/paste is faster to copy a long line.
