My only reason for reply here right now is I'm unsure if the possibility of an array has been mentioned.
If your it appears to me that you have two inputs to take from one doc and get those two inputs into a 2nd doc.
if your 1. headline and your 2. news or summary or whatever it is
If those two have enough flexibility so as to somehow "delimit" with a delimiter of some sort in between # 1 and # 2 then you could SetDelimiter then SetArray
Doing so would grab it all (both your headline and your news) in just one swoop. You'd have a two item array. For example, given the array variable name
then in this case
contains your headline
contains your news
This does not use the clipboard. Those are variables. As per the above example, each numeral index (the 1 or 2 at end of variable name), just dump from each of those into the appropriate place in your output doc.
Regards the delimiter lots of possibilities here. Could use two or three blank lines (between headline and news) such as
