Disabling Cut/Paste Link

Hey, there! Hopefully this isn’t a question asked a million times before, but I haven’t been able to find an answer online.

Currently, using Ctrl+X to cut a section automatically copies that section to my clipboard; this could not be FURTHER from what I want. I need to keep room tone in my clipboard for easy pasting – having every mistake and mouth sound I’ve cut be automatically stored there instead is a nightmare. I keep having to scroll back to a section with room tone and copy it again, and again, and again…

Is there a way to make the “cut” action ONLY cut, and not copy? Or, if not – and maybe this is taboo – can anyone suggest an audio editing software that is capable of this? I don’t think Audacity will work for me if there is no “cut” function that doesn’t also copy.

Thank you in advance!

Try Ctrl+K …

That works; thank you so much for saving me!
