Copying text is as easy as double-tapping a word. But when you want to copy a whole paragraph, like for an inspection area text, you have to stretch those annoying little blue knobs...or do you?

Tap any editable text four times. You'll highlight the whole paragraph and select Copy. Then for each subsequent inspection area, you'd like to reuse that same text just Paste the text as normal.

If you find you are using specific sentences or phrases over and over again then setting up Shorthand Words will make Inspecting in PIM even easier. Shorthand Words can also be assigned to specific Inspection Areas providing greater context. Follow our videos guides on setting up Shorthand Words.

For a quick and easy way to add new Shorthand Words, simply highlight any text and tap the Shorthand Word symbol (see screenshot below) and then enter a brief abbreviation. If you wish to add the whole phrase there is no need to highlight the text you can just tap on the Shorthand Word symbol to add your phrase and assign it an abbreviation.

You will then be able to reuse that text by entering the abbreviation and tapping space which auto-populates the full shorthand phrase in your notes or simply tap the Blue cross on the left or right-hand side of the Notes area to display the full list of shorthand words available.

Once tapped, enter the Abbreviation you wish to use and select if you want to assign it to This Area Only or All Areas
