Chapter 5. Getting the Most from Fields > Using AutoText to Insert Often-Used F...

5.3. Using AutoText to Insert Often-Used Fields Quickly

If you use the same fields often, you'll want a quick and easy way to insert them. Use AutoText for this purpose. To define an AutoText entry for a field:

  1. Insert a field into your document, as described previously.

  2. Select the field, and then click Edit > AutoText (or press Ctrl+F3).

  3. On the AutoText dialog (Figure 5-6), choose the group where this new entry will be stored (in this example, it's going into My AutoText), type a name for the entry, and change the suggested shortcut if you wish.

  4. Click the AutoText button, and click New to have the entry inserted as a field. Do not choose New (text only) or the AutoText entry will be plain text, not a field.

  5. Now whenever you want to insert this field at the cursor position, press the shortcut keys, then press F3.
