Abstract

This article describes a method that allows a user to save blocks of text in a single document while retaining the capacity to recall each block individually in any order. Previously to save a block of text, the user could use the NOTEPAD function in DisplayWrite4 to save one block of text in a "notepad" document. The user could then recall this block of text by selecting the RECALL from the notepad function. If the user wished to save another block of text, the NOTEPAD function would write over the previously saved block of text to save the new block if the user did not supply a notepad document name. The user could supply a new document name to save this new block of text.
