Inserting Quick Parts

Word’s Quick Parts offers you dozens of pre-made content elements, called building blocks, you can insert into your documents. Building blocks include headers that appear at the top of each page, salutations to end letters, and page numbers. Word’s Building Blocks Organizer holds a vast array of reusable Quick Parts elements you can choose from, and you can add your own to the mix. You can turn any text into a building block that appears in the Quick Part Gallery to reuse over and over again.
