Hi,
Could you be a little more specific as to what you would like to know about the stationary pad?
Thanks in advance.

I am using the stationary pad to place backslash around a number in caption for code conversion and placing the result conversion in an unused field.

I then use the pad to place the conversion back into the caption field.

Then use the pad to empty the "unused" field. 

If there is a sequence of pad operations, I may be able to combine some operations.

Typing bib numbers of 400 Special Olympic athletes is much faster if I don't have to put the backslash  around the bib number at data entry time.  My process works.  Just trying to symplify.

The concept of stationery pads is relatively simple: instead of opening a document directly for editing, make a copy to open as a "new" file in the corresponding application, using the same saved layouts, settings, and other data that is stored in the stationery pad. This is exceptionally useful, because it allows you to make a template out of practically any document for use in any application, even if that application does not have options for its own template library. 8)
