It's easy enough to say: "Now copy and paste your articles
together, edit them into an eBook and convert them to PDF".
But I'm going to cover the basics here for those of you
who are learning your way around the computer as we go
So what does "Copy and Paste" mean?"
Your computers operating system sets aside an area of
memory it call the "clipboard" for the short term parking
of text and files.
You can copy to the clipboard in a number of ways:
First you need to "select" the text or files you want to
copy-we'll ignore files for the moment and only deal with
text. If you want to select all of the text in your
document you could click anywhere inside the document then
hold down the "control key" (on a PC) and then press the A
key (this is called "Control A") and all of the text would
be selected and highlighted…or you could go to the "Edit"
menu and click on "Select All" and get the same result.
You can select sections of text by simply holding down the
left mouse key and dragging the pointer across the text.
Give it a try, you'll see how easy it is.
A word of WARNING: Make sure you "save" your document
before you do any of this or you might accidentally erase
You can now "copy to clipboard" by pressing "Control C"
or by selecting "copy" from the Edit menu. Your selected
text is now saved on the clipboard and will stay there
until you overwrite it with another copy operation or you
turn off your PC.
You now open your new document, position you cursor where
you want your copied text to start and press "Control V" or
"Paste" from the Edit menu. Your copied text will now be
written (or Pasted) into the new document.
You follow this process with your remaining articles and
you have now cobbled together your eBook.
I am not going to get into the process of cleaning up your
text and making the book flow, I am assuming you are
skillful enough at writing to do this on your own.
Now that your book is written you will want to create a
template for the text to give it that professional look and
convert it to PDF.
Keep on Winning
