Copy and paste several Word texts at once


Microsoft Word has a somewhat unknown function that allows us to copy and paste several texts at once let s see how it works

Word is probably the most used text editor in the world, a program that is part of the popular Microsoft Office office suite and that It has been a good number of years between us serving millions of users daily.

However, there are functions that this known program that, despite having been using it for years, surely you did not know, as is the case we are going to talk about in these lines. Keep in mind that over time, the firm of Redmond has been increasing the possibilities that the editor makes available to its clients in order to grow in versatility and improve the experience in its use.

Therefore, in these lines we will see a function that surely many of you did not know but that at the same time it will be very useful in certain circumstances. Specifically, we refer to the possibility of copying several blocks of text from different locations at once, then paste them into another document or in another part of it.

This is something we have always been able to do by switching from one place to another as many times as necessary depending on the parts of the text we want copy to the new location , but this task can be a bit annoying, so we will see a much faster and more effective system.

For this we will make use of a function that Word has hidden but is not too well known, called "Spike", which is nothing more than a clipboard a little more advanced so we can paste in it several parts of the same text and take them to another part at once.

Copy several Word texts at once time

Therefore we refer to a little known utility that allows us to copy several selections of texts to the clipboard, and then paste them as a group in a new location. We will also say that Spike is very easy to use and works with both texts and other elements of the document , such as graphics >, for example.

So, to get the most out of Spike we will have to follow these steps. The first thing will be to select the text block that we want to copy, but not in the traditional way, but once we have made the selection, press the key combination “Ctrl + F3. " This part will automatically be added to the clipboard, something that we can repeat as many times as we need to add more blocks to the mentioned clipboard .

Once we have finished extracting the pieces of text , we are in the new location and to copy all those parts at once, click on the combination of keys "Ctrl + Shift + F3" , with what we will see that all the previously copied parts reappear at once. We can use this system with as many independent elements as we need, taking into account that Spike will paste them in the new document at once, with the first copies appearing at the top.

Finally, we will tell you that this function does not “Copy” the texts that we select , but rather “Cut” them to paste them in the new location , so they disappear from the original document.
