If there’s any technique that will make my job easier and faster, I’ll try it. For example, there are certain words or phrases that I need to use often. Microsoft Word’s AutoText offers a way to store and quickly insert text, graphics, and even fields, tables, bookmarks, or other items that you use frequently. There are also a number of built-in AutoText entries divided into different categories.

  1. Select the text or graphic you want to store as an AutoText entry.
  2. Go to Insert to AutoText, and then click New.
  3. You can also show the AutoText toolbar and use it to create an AutoText entry. In the Create AutoText dialog box, enter a name for the AutoText entry. Microsoft Word stores the AutoText entry for later use.
  4. Click OK.

If you want to limit AutoText entries to particular documents, select a different template in the Look In box when you create the AutoText entry.
