Take down contact info in MEMO and transfer it to PHONE
Some users find it easier to take down contact information in a MEMO file and then review it at a later time to see if they really want to enter it in their Phone Book.
COPYING DATA FROM MEMO TO PHONE ON THE 95LX
You can use the 95LX clipboard function to copy contact information from MEMO to a new Phone Book card. You should have the contact information in MEMO formatted as follows: First line contains the name, no more than 30 characters. Second line contains the phone number, no more than 30 characters. The next eight lines will have address or other information. Each of the last eight lines can be no longer than 39 characters. Each line must end carriage return. The MEMO entry on the 95LX might look something like this (left carrots in MEMO indicate hard returns):

Place the cursor at the beginning of the information you want to copy (i.e. on the "G" of "Goldstein"), and press (F9) (Mark). Move the cursor down to the end highlighting the desired information and press (F2) (Copy). Then open PHONE to the Index view and press (F4) (Paste). PHONE will create a new card with the first 30 characters of the first line in Name, the first 30 characters of the second line in Number, and the first 39 characters of the next eight lines in the Address field. Excess characters will not be copied over. If you have 95Buddy [ON DISK] on your Palmtop, you can use the clipboard's copy and paste functions to copy data to individual fields in PHONE's Edit card view.
