  3. If prompted (v10.01a+) with a selection list of pinboard categories, select appropriate category.
  4. Click OK

To paste a phrase from the pinboard

  1. Position the text cursor at the point you wish to paste the stored phrase
  3. (v10.01a+) The left-hand pinboard selection panel will appear with stored phrases listed by category. You can see a full preview by hovering the cursor over each entry. (earlier versions of OyezForms will offer a simple list for selection).
  4. Click on the phrase you wish to insert. It will appear in the form.
