Dear Microsoft Word…Please Add This Feature

Dear Microsoft Word Developers,

I use Word just about every day. There are many times I am typing something and decide a part of the text needs to be made into a document of its own. It would be great if you could select the text, right click it or have a menu option under edit (with keyboard shortcut) to make the selected text into a new document! You could quickly name the document and have it cut or copy that text into a new document. That would save me so much time. Thanks for listening.



Can anyone give me an “amen”? Can I get a witness up in here?

    I’m sure you could do a search for a macro that would let you do this.

      I hadn’t thought of that. Okay…I guess I need to get more creative. A friend on facebook mentioned the series of keyboard shortcuts that would do this – Ctrl+C, Ctrl+N, Ctrl+V, Ctrl+S

      Is it a shortcut if it takes you 4 shortcuts to get there? 🙂

      Like when your mama is cooking that corn bread and you smell it as it’s sitting in the window sill…you tell that preacher, “Mmmmm….hmmmmm”

      What was the guy’s name who said all that at FCA?
