Repetition Made Easy

Repetition Made Easy

Ever find that you’re looking to repeat the last string of typing you did in MS Word?

Perhaps you have a phrase that needs to be repeated throughout a document, or maybe a repetitious list. Whatever the case, I simply have to ask…what did you do?

Maybe you went the difficult route and retyped the text.

Maybe you highlighted, then copied / pasted the text. That’s definitely a shorter way, it’s but not the shortest.

How about an easy key combination that will put your last typed string of text anywhere you place the cursor in the document?

Sounds like a good idea to me and fortunately I’ve got just the thing.

To repeat the last typed text, simply use Ctrl + Y.

Yep, it’s that easy! Press Ctrl + Y and you’ve got an instant insert of text without any extra fuss.
