    Word 2013 spike

    I am using Word 2013 and have just learnt of the (almost) useful ‘spike' feature. Anyone familiar with the spike will know that every block of text on the spike - regardless of where it came from - will get pasted altogether to a new location.
    My question is: Is it at all possible to spike every consecutive block of text and save it in the AutoText area as a entirely separate entry?

    I don't think I've used the Spike since the Office Clipboard was introduced. Why not select the text and create your AutoText?

    You can certainly paste from the Spike and create an AutoText entry from the result.
