"Evaluate"paste, then evaluate in place what has been pasted
"EvaluateCell"paste, then evaluate the whole cell
"CopyEvaluate"copy the current selection into a new cell, then paste and evaluate in place
"CopyEvaluateCell"copy the current selection into a new cell, then paste and evaluate the whole cell
