Gather items from text.
I find this useful for gathering information from long articles. I paste the article into the Original Text field, highlight segments in the order I want. As I do that the segments appear in the Edited Text field, where I edit them. Then I highlight my summary and copy it out.
If you enter the following in the Original Text field ...
The rain in Spain falls mainly on the plain. Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers.
And then if you highlight...
The rain, and then highlight falls mainly on, and finally highlight Peter Piper, each of those character strings will appear in the Edited Text field as you highlight them, and the final phrase in the Edited Text field will be: The rain falls mainly on Peter Piper.

“At the least whosoever has the spirit of Christ, shall find that spirit in him striving against that which is contrary, and by little and little gaining ground. Where there is no conflict, there is no spirit of Christ at all.”
–Richard Sibbes, Description of Christ
