I want to transfer words and phrases in a single click (ideally) from one pages into a word document. Is there a program or technique to help me achieve this? I can visualise what I want, but can't find or explain it! Any help or suggestion on where to begin appreciated
Unless your definition of single-click is different than my definition of single-click, I don't see how this could be possible.
Think about what steps it would take to transfer a word from one document to another. You need to select the word in the 1st document, then switch to the 2nd document and then (at minimum) click on the place where you want that word to be transferred to.
The quickest way I know to accomplish what you want to do is using keyboard shortcuts to cut and paste from one document to another.
Is this to copy words and phrases from a website or various documents, or predefined phrases?
If it's the former it will likely be a case of selecting what you want to copy then using Ctrl+C/Ctrl+V.
If it's predefined phrases, then your best bet will be setting your own AutoCorrect shortcuts.
For example you can define 'Weather largely fine and dry' as 'wfd' and it will automatically turn the letters wfd into the defined sentance.
This is how things were set in the software I used to support when I worked for a call centre - believe me if there was a faster way to do things than this they would have found it as they managed people's time down to the last second.
There's a Youtube tutorial on using this feature here. It's for an older version of Word but should still apply:
Thanks root, my tech talk is below par
I hope to build predefined phrases (the same ones I use over and over in nursing) they are small so copy/paste is cumbersome (I am a poor typer but I can type faster than copy pasting) I want to populate a pages and single click transfer from that pages to a word doc
I think potentially you could use macros to achieve this but that’s pretty advanced stuff. Otherwise it will be a case of using the custom autocorrect dictionary to define short strings of letters into a fuller phrase or sentence.
Did you manage to load the YouTube link I posted earlier - this functionality I think will be the best option to help speed up typing commonly used phrases
