How to save and insert canned copy?

Post by d2Zob2xtZX » Thu, 06 Jan 2005 07:21:03


I want to be able to keep canned copy that can be easily inserted into a
document.

I used to be able to do it by typing in a key word and pressing F3 to insert
the copy.

You can still do this. It's called AutoText. See

You still can. The feature is called AutoText. If you still have your old
system where you did this, chances are you can copy the AutoText. See

on moving / sharing / copying / backing-up customizations including
AutoText, AutoCorrect, keyboard assignments, toolbars, macros, etc.

Pasting is irrelevant to AutoText, which is inserted using F3.
