    Word software

    Hello guys, I am new here and I hope I am writing where I should. I was wondering if it is posible to create a simple software or if there is something like this already inside microsoft word: I was thinking if it is posible to create a simple software which has like 4 or 5 buttons and each button simply copies text, maybe from some files inside it or however it can be done, inside a word document.
    Thank you for your time and patience!

    You can copy and paste using Ctrl-C (copy) and Ctrl-V (paste). Pretty close to buttons. Does that help or can you otherwise clarify what your asking?

    Also, there are "buttons" top left on the ribbon in the version of word I am using (2010) for copy and paste.

    And welcome to TenForums, raulGLD!

    Thank you! and thank you for your reply. I think it's my bad for not being precise enough on what I want.
    I have some sort of text which is hundreds of pages long and it is sorted out in 10 articles. And I want to have a program or something with 10 buttons, each of them to insert a certain article in one word document. So I wouldn't have to use copy and paste every time because I am doing this for a couple of times a day and I feel like I am going crazy. Because it's never the same order on the articles and they also have subarticles which I sometime have to put in another order so you can understand why I would need such a "shortcut". Thank you!

    Ah, OK. It sounds more like a macro could sort that but that's way out of my league (unless in Excel). Hopefully, someone here at TenForums has more experience in Word that can give you constructive suggestions.

    Best of Luck!

    It sounds like a clipboard manager might do what you want.

    I played around with Ditto clipboard manager for a little bit and if you're not opposed to using some keyboard shortcuts then you can CTRL-C all 10 of your text snippets and mark them as sticky so that they don't get overwritten. After that you can hit CTRL-~ to bring up the Ditto UI and just double-click the snippet you want to paste it (there might be some other shortcuts to speed this up as well).
