Spike

When editing a document you can "harvest" sections of text and move them to other areas as a combined effort. This is called a spike.

  • Highlight the text you want to move.
  • Press Ctrl + F3.
  • Highlight some more text you want to move with the first set of text.
  • Press another Ctrl + F3.
  • Keep doing that until you are through.
  • Then choose the place you want all of the text to move to and press Ctrl + Shift + F3

You can close out most programs with Alt + F4.
