The Spike is a Microsoft Word function which allows you to remove two or more items (such as text or graphics) from non-adjacent locations in a Word document, and then paste them in a new location.
Step 1: Select the content and press Ctrl + F3. This cuts the content and puts it on the Spike.
We copied two blocks of text, one after the other which we will now paste into a new document.
Step 2: Click the File tab > New > Blank Document
Step 3: Click Ctrl + Shift + F3 to paste the text gathered in the Spike and all the data in the Spike, including all the text previously added is inserted into the document.
Note You can also view the Spike's contents without it being pasted or the Spike emptied. Click on the tab I Insert in the Text section, click the Quick Parts button and select AutoText.
