Abstract

In the normal word processing operations utilizing an electronic typewriter which has the capability of storing phrases and documents in identifiable and recallable segments of memory, it is necessary for the operator to maintain a log clearly identifying the particular storage segment in which a phrase or document has been stored. If the operator is distracted prior to writing down the segment of storage in which the material is being stored, the large number of available segments may potentially lead to confusion of the operator in attempting to retrieve the text after storage. If the operator fails to remember where the text was stored, it would be very time consuming for the operator to locate the desired text segment later.
