Most AutoText entries consist of a few words on a single line, but you can create an AutoText entry that contains several lines of text or even blank lines.
- Enter the text, including the blank line between the two bracketed components, and then select all three lines.
- Check the text entry in the Enter AutoText Entries Here control. Word will use the first cluster of characters, in this case, that's <nl>, which is probably more characters than you'd like to enter.
Delete all but the most necessary characters. In this case, delete l>.
Preview the entry to make sure all of the text is right.
Click OK to add the AutoText entry.
- From the Insert menu, choose AutoText. Then, choose AutoText from the resulting submenu. Word will insert the selected text, which you can check in the Preview pane.
