Editing Message Text

Before you can edit text, you need to highlight, or select, the text you want to modify. Then you can delete, replace, move (cut), or copy text within one document or between documents even if they're from different programs. In either case, the steps are the same. Text you cut or copy is temporarily stored in the Office Clipboard. You can also move or copy selected text without storing it on the Clipboard by using drag-and-drop editing.

Select and Edit Text

Move the I-beam pointer to the left or right of the text you want to select.

Drag the pointer to highlight the text.

TIMESAVER Double-click a word to select it; triple-click a paragraph to select it.

Perform one of the following editing commands:

  • To replace text, type your text.

  • To delete text, press the Backspace key or the Delete key.
