public void PasteExample(DTE2 dte)
{
    // Create a new text file and insert ten lines of text.
    dte.ItemOperations.NewFile(@"General\Text File", "", 
        Constants.vsViewKindPrimary);
    TextDocument textDoc = 
        (TextDocument)dte.ActiveDocument.Object("TextDocument");
    EditPoint editPnt = textDoc.StartPoint.CreateEditPoint();
    
    for (int i = 1; i <= 10; i++)
        editPnt.Insert("Line " + i.ToString() + "\n");

    if (MessageBox.Show("Reverse the order of the lines?", "", 
        MessageBoxButtons.YesNo) == DialogResult.Yes)
    {
        TextSelection textSel = textDoc.Selection;

        // Position the insertion point at beginning of "Line 2".
        textSel.StartOfDocument(false);
        textSel.LineDown(false, 1);

        // Reverse the order of the lines by cutting "Line 2" and
        // pasting it at the start of the document, then cutting
        // "Line 3" and pasting it at the start of the document,
        // and so on.
        for (int i = 1; i <= 9; i++)
        {
            textSel.LineDown(true, 1);
            textSel.Cut();
            editPnt.StartOfDocument();
