Block commands l.jpg
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 con t l.jpg
Block Commands (con’t)

  • 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.

  • At the end of each section, there are usually review questions to answer.

  • You may want to copy the questions you need to do for homework and put them in a separate file so you can print them out along with your answers for your teacher.

  • Step 1: Move the cursor to the first character of the text you want to block.
