If you are using Word for Windows the Spike function does what you want. The
only catch is that Spike cuts the selected text from the document ask it
collects it. You can either live with that, making a copy of the document that
you don't mind having holes in, or you can make a macro that does a Spike
followed by a Paste (to return the spiked bit to where it came from).
