How to Get There: Edit/Copy Selected Records

Choose this option to transfer only the selected records to the Clipboard.

 

Step 1)

 

To select one time record:

 

Click to select a time record from the time records list in the main window and its row is highlighted.

 

To select multiple time records:

 

Method 1: Select a contiguous range of time records.  Click once on the first time record from the time records list in the main window and then hold down the Shift key and simultaneously click once on the last time record in the range.  Then release the Shift key.  Your selected time records are highlighted.

 

Method 2:  Select a random set of time records.  Hold down the Ctrl key and click once on each time record from the time records list in the main window. Each selected time record is highlighted.  Unselect one by holding down the Ctrl key and clicking on it.

 

Method 3: Use Method 1 above and then hold down the Ctrl key and click on specific time records to unselect.

 

Step 2) Once you've selected your time records, choose Edit/Copy Selected Records and the Copy window will appear containing the text of the records that you've selected.  (Only those columns that are displayed in the time record list will be represented. See: Column Layout - Changing for help setting up the Columns.)

Step 3) By default, all of the text will be highlighted.  Either click the Copy button, or change which text is highlighted and then click the Copy button.

Step 4) Paste the text into your document.

NOTE: The text will be tab delimited.  In most word processors, you can change the text you paste into table.  For MS-Word, try clicking on Table->Convert->Text to Table.
