Appending Text to a Document

If you have a chunk of text in one document that you want to add to the bottom of another — but you don’t want to merge the two documents, as outlined in Chapter 2 — follow these steps:

1. Select the desired text in the Editor.

2. Choose EditAppend Selection to Document.

3. From the submenu that appears, choose the file to which you want to append the text.

The text is copied from the current document and added at the end of the document you selected.

In the submenu, you can also select New, rather than an existing file. If you do, a window appears, prompting you to choose a Binder location and a title, and then creates a new file that contains the selected text after you click OK. It also adds an internal reference (covered in Chapter 5) between the current document and the new one.

tip.eps Append Selection to Document is also available from the contextual menu that appears when you right-click a selection of text.
