Let's asume, you have an clipbookentry called tia and if you doubleclick
it, it will insert the text 'thanks in advance'.
when this clb is activated, and you are in the txt, you can just type
tia + <f2>
and the clip will be executed -> the text will be pasted into the document.
I do use it in my 'generate mail' clip. This generates from the text a mail
which can be send with postie, a commandline mailer. at the end of the
clip, the word SendMail is inserted and selected. I can take a quick look
at the mail and if it's ok (most of the time) I just press F2 - and the
clip SendMail will be executet.
If you work more with the clipbooks, you can access them fast by alt+1 till
alt+0 - I know a special kombination is alt+4 plus typing gre plus f2 -
it's the only clipentry starting with gre, a fast way to execute such
[There is a weekly newsletter from Kay which has a good description on 'how
to access the clipbooks fast']
