This is accomplished by copy/paste. Note: To copy plain text, see Maintain text.

If the source text is changed at any time, it will affect the text retrieved as a link. This is an efficient way of changing text on all documents. If for some reason you do not want the text to be changed, do not retrieve the text as a link.
