Re: change the AUTO TEXT selections in the HEADER-FOOTER toolbar

The AutoText entries shown on the Header and Footer toolbar are those that
were created in the Header or Footer style. If you create the AutoText entry
when you're in a header or footer, you'll be in that style; otherwise,
you'll have to apply it manually before creating the AutoText entry.

The current header- footer toolbar has the usual selections (created on,
filename etc). I have created the new auto text in the regular auto text

of the choices in the footer toolbar.
