Building Blocks are a fresh new way to reuse pieces of content within your Word docs. Logos, address blocks, tables, pictures, text…you name it you can reuse it. The old days of having to open up a Word doc, select some text, hit the copy button, then switch docs and paste are over. Well not over, just can be done much more efficiently when you have content that is used often.
So go on and open up a Word document if you would like to try. Type some content that you plan on using again. For example, if you write letters to a frequent client, then write down their mailing address information.
Step 1: Select the content you want to reuse again. From the Insert tab click Quick Parts and choose “Add Selection to Quick Part Gallery…”.
Step 2: Name the building block and click Ok.
Step 3: The final step is to insert the Building Block to the document. Click the Quick Parts button, then choose the item on the list you want.. Note- You can save as many building parts as you would like. They will be listed in alphbetical order.
After clicking the building block from the list it will be added to the document. Give yourself a high five for just saving some time!
