Using the Clipboard to your Advantage in MS Word

Dennis Faas's picture

I am sure you knew that you can copy multiple blocks of text in MS Word - at least I hope I have taught you that much! But did you know that you can paste multiple blocks of text rather than the last chunk that you copied? Well guess what? You can!

Follow the steps below to learn how:

  • To make use of this feature, turn on the Clipboard toolbar in MS Word version 2003, or the clipboard menu in the latest version of MS Word - 2007.  
  • When you do this, you will see all the snippets that you have copied, in the order that you copied them.  
  • You can now be selective about what you pick and choose to paste into your MS Word document. You do not have to paste all of the snippets you copied, you can select the specific clippings that you wish to insert into your document.

Another great time saver and organizational tool to boot!
