Default Pasting memory - really wierd


does maya have some kind of pasting memory? I was just working on a new scene, and was pasting some text from the name of one material to another.

I don't know what keys I hit by accident along with from ctrl+v, but maya pasted in a copy of a part of a model I made (most of a pistol). I haven't even had it's scene file open for around 3 weeks.

What happened?

I cn only speak from a Windows Standpoint, but Maya uses the Machines Clipboard for anything like text, filenames etc...

To get Geometry to paste into a scene it would have to have been copied or cut and then pasted into the scene. Normaly you would duplicate or import geometry into a scene. So I have no idea what you did to get the geometry in, maybe it was still in the clipboard.
