Part 8. Handy Editing Techniques > Inserting Standard Blocks of Text

Inserting Standard Blocks of Text

Type the text that you want Word to “memorize.”

Select the text.

Open the Insert menu, choose AutoText, and select New (or press Alt+F3).

Type a name for the entry in the Create AutoText dialog box. (Choose a name that is at least four characters long.)

INTRODUCTION

AutoText is an extremely handy feature that lets Word “memorize” large blocks of text. Once you've created an AutoText entry, you can insert it in your text by simply beginning to type the name of the entry. As soon as you've typed the first few characters, Word's AutoComplete feature takes over and inserts the entire block of text for you.


Click OK.

Click in a document in the spot where you want to insert the text, and type the first few letters of the name you typed in step 4. As soon as you see the yellow box, press Enter.

Word inserts the AutoText entry in your document.
