Abstract

An operator can create a new document from other documents in the memory of an electronic typewriter through using parts or all of the other documents or keying material into one or more of the other documents or into a portion of one or more of the other documents. The newly created document can be saved in memory or just printed as a one-time copy. To create a document, an operator need only key GET + . The ID is from 1 to 99 with each number representing a document having information. If the typewriter is not in the PLAY mode, the information is copied into the active (new) document to the left of the active point in the memory. If the typewriter is in the PLAY mode, the "gotten" document plays into the active document at the active point.
