Yesterday I explained how to use AutoText entries to speed up entering data. Today, I’ll show you how to organize your AutoText entries into groups on the menu using Styles:

You create or add an entry to AutoText groups on the AutoText menu by saving an AutoText entry formatted using a style with the name you want to be added to the menu. For example, to add an AutoText entry to the Closing group, type the text, select it and format it with a style called closing (or create a style with that name). Then save the text as an AutoText entry.

When an AutoText entry is saved that is formatted with a style a new entry with that style name appears on the AutoText menu or the item is added to the submenu if it already exists. So, to enter something on the closing submenu, format it with a style that you have called Closing before creating it.
