I was trying out the autotext feature. I insert the text from the AutoText and I get the text but the placeholders are displayed as text, not as something I can click to overwrite. I did not find much info in the help. Does anyone know how these placeholders are used?
<placeholder:"11/11/99":"Click placeholder and overwrite">

Thanks
Sal

Try View > Fields and if there's a check mark there, unmark it.
Some of the existing autotext is fields, like your stuff, and you have to doubleclick it to modify it. The rest, like "second warning" and stuff you add yourself, is plain.
Any AutoText automatically keeps its formatting, so it's a pretty powerful tool.
