Block commands

Block Commands

  • Block commands enable you to define an area of text and then manipulate it.

  • For example, once you define an area of text, you can delete it or move it or copy it to another section or another file.

Block Commands (continued)

  • Copying a block of text does not change anything about the text you define. You are simply making another copy of it.

  • Moving a block of text actually removes it from its original location and puts it in another place.

  • Suppose you have a textbook chapter stored in your Social Studies Folder.
