Before something can be pasted, it must first be selected and copied to the clipboard. Players can make a selection using WorldEdit via using the assigned WorldEdit tool, which is by default a wooden axe.
Step 1.) The command //wand can be used to obtain the WorldEdit tool. This tool will be used to make the initial selection.
Step 2.) Players must now select one corner of the structure they want to copy. In the example below, the bottom corner will be used. The selection is made by simply hitting the desired block with the wooden axe.
Step 3.) After successfully selecting one corner, players must select the opposite corner from the one selected already. In the example, this will be the top corner on the other side.
To make the second selection, players will need to press the interaction key (Right-Click on PC). Make sure not to hit the block normally with the wooden axe tool, as this will cancel the first part of the selection done in step 2.

A helpful tip while pasting with WorldEdit in Minecraft is to consider using the command //paste -a as this will not paste any air blocks.
If the location of the paste is incorrect, or the selection has turned out wrong, players can use the command //undo. This will undo the last paste made.
