Tutorial > Lesson 3: Append
Glue lets you combine several text items into one big new item. It is very handy for gathering a bunch of items, and pasting into your word processor.
|•||Open the ClipMate Explorer window. If you are in Classic, use the "toggle" button to switch to Explorer.|
|•||You'll now see the expanded layout. This is called the ClipMate Explorer, as opposed to the "Traditional View" that you were in before.|
|•||On the right side of the screen is the list of Clips, called the ClipList. |
|•||Holding down the Ctrl key, click on Apple, Banana, etc. The direction matters, so work your way from the bottom to the top, to "glue" in the right order.|
|•||Press the Append button on ClipMate's toolbar: |
|•||You'll see a new item appear in the drop-down list, titled "Append: (5 Items)"|
|•||In Notepad, do a File | New to clear out anything remaining from the last lesson, and paste in your new data – you should see all 5 items appear as one block of new text.|
Note: If ClipMate Explorer is taking up too much room, press Ctrl+E to go back to ClipMate Classic, or minimize Explorer.
That's how to do an Append, "after the fact".
