Hi Matt,

First, select the cell(s) you want to convert in *InputForm* by clicking 
on the right bracket of each cell or group of cells (you can also use 
the "shift" and "control" keys). Then type in the group of keys 
"shift"+"control"+"i" and then "control"+"c" to copy the cells.

A detail list of shortcuts for Windows, Macintosh and Linux can be found 
in Help Browser -> Front End -> Keyboard Shortcuts

Best regards,
