Juniper Culinary Academy, to be displayed. Recall that earlier in this chapter, you created a building block name of

Building Blocks vs. AutoCorrect
In Project 2, you learned how to use the AutoCorrect feature, which enables you to
insert and create AutoCorrect entries, similarly to how you created and inserted building
blocks in this chapter. The difference between an AutoCorrect entry and a building block
entry is that the AutoCorrect feature makes corrections for you automatically as soon as you
press the SPACEBAR or type a punctuation mark, whereas you must instruct Word to insert a
building block. That is, you enter the building block name and then press the F 3 key, or click
the Quick Parts button and select the building block from the list.
To Enter a Paragraph
The next step in creating the cover letter is to enter a paragraph of text.
1 Press the ENTER key twice to place a blank line between paragraphs, according to the
guidelines of the modifi ed block letter style.
