Abstract

An operator of any electronic typewriter having a correction buffer can retroactively make a clean original or multiple originals of a page. For example, text can be reprinted outside of a document storage area of a memory typewriter. Memory typewriters presently having playback capability require the operator to specify a storage mode before the text is entered in order to save the text in the document storage area. Any text keyed with the typewriter in a non-storage mode cannot be played back later so that the operator, who fails to specify storage mode before keying the text, has to rekey all of the text up to where the mistake was discovered.
