     I do it the old way. Find the thing you want to be on your 
terminal. There select to put it on the special memory with Edit select 
all, if you want all of it. With this in the special memory go to your 
terminal and place the the vertical line where you want the saved things 
to go. Then Click on Edit and then Save.

     It is much harder to write than to do. I do all this from memory 
and it works :-)
