Here's mor info that might be helpful from a few years ago:.  This was an answer I provided to a similar question on a different tech list

 

8/08/16  
Here you go:
 
PlaceMarkers

 

A PlaceMarker is a bookmark that you can easily add to a Web page, HTML, PDF,  or Word document, or form to mark a location. This is useful when you want
to  return to commonly used areas on a Web page, important sections or paragraphs of  an HTML document, or specific parts, such as required fields, of
a complicated  form. PlaceMarkers can be defined as temporary or permanent and can be anchored  to text, elements of the current Web page, or to a Web
site's domain. Multiple  PlaceMarkers can be added to HTML or PDF documents, while only one can be added  to a Word document.

 

The following describes how to add, rename, or delete PlaceMarkers. If you  are not familiar with PlaceMarkers and need more information, refer to
Important PlaceMarker Concepts.
For additional  PlaceMarker operation, refer to
Advanced PlaceMarker Usage.
For general information  about using PlaceMarkers in a Word document, refer to
Marking and Returning to a PlaceMarker in Word.

 

Adding a Temporary PlaceMarker

 

To quickly add a temporary PlaceMarker, do the following:

 

list of 3 items
1. Open a Web page, other HTML document, or Word document.
2. Move the virtual cursor to the location on the page where you want to put    the PlaceMarker.
3. Press CTRL+WINDOWS Key+K. A temporary PlaceMarker now    appears on the page.

 

You can always jump to it using any of the    following
Navigation Quick Keys:
K, SHIFT+K, SHIFT+ number row keys 7 through 0, or CTRL+SHIFT+K. (The last keystroke opens the PlaceMarker List.    Select Temporary from the list, and
then choose the Move To button.)
list end

 

Selecting Between the Temporary PlaceMarker and the Cursor Position

 

To select text between a temporary PlaceMarker and your current position in a  Web page, HTML document, or Word document, do the following:

 

list of 2 items
1. Press CTRL+WINDOWS Key+k to set a temporary PlaceMarker.
2. Navigate to another location on the Web page or document, then press INSERT+SPACEBAR, M. All text between the temporary    PlaceMarker and your current
cursor position is selected and ready to be    copied to the Clipboard.
list end

 

This method is often easier than using the SHIFT Key in  conjunction with the ARROW keys when attempting to select large  blocks of text.

 

Adding Permanent PlaceMarkers to Web Pages or HTML Documents

 

To add a PlaceMarker, do the following:

 

list of 6 items
1. Open a Web page or other HTML document.
2. Move the virtual cursor to the location on the page where you want to put    the PlaceMarker.
3. Press CTRL+SHIFT+K and then ENTER.
The Add PlaceMarker dialog box opens with focus in the Name edit field. It    contains text that appears at the cursor location. If you want to change
the    PlaceMarker name, type a new name in this field; otherwise, press TAB to move to the next control.
4. The Define for All Pages on Current Domain check box is cleared by    default, which allows the PlaceMarker to be anchored only to the current Web
  page or HTML document. If you want to use this PlaceMarker so that it is    anchored to all pages within the current domain instead, press SPACEBAR to
select the check box. Press TAB to move to the next control.
5. The Anchor to Text check box is cleared by default. Select this check box    if you want to link the PlaceMarker with specific text, such as a heading,
   that appears on the page. This can be useful on frequently updated Web pages    where text and elements tend to drift from their original position.
When    selected, the next control, Anchor Text edit field, automatically populates    using the original text in the Name edit field. This guarantees
that the    PlaceMarker will always be associated with this text on the Web page.
6. Press TAB to navigate to the OK button and press SPACEBAR to close the dialog box and save the PlaceMarker.
list end

 

Renaming PlaceMarkers

 

To change the name of a PlaceMarker, do the following:

 

list of 5 items
1. Open the page containing the PlaceMarker you want to rename.
2. Press CTRL+SHIFT+K to display a list of PlaceMarkers on    this page.
3. Use the UP ARROW or DOWN ARROW keys to    select the PlaceMarker.
4. Press SPACEBAR on the Change Name button or press ALT+C.
5. Enter a new name for the PlaceMarker and then press SPACEBAR on the OK button.
list end

 

Removing PlaceMarkers

 

To remove one or more PlaceMarkers, do the following:

 

list of 4 items
1. Open the page containing the PlaceMarker you want to delete.
2. Press CTRL+SHIFT+K to display a list of all PlaceMarkers    on the current page.
3. Use the UP ARROW or DOWN ARROW keys to    select a PlaceMarker.
4. Press SPACEBAR on the Remove button or press ALT+R to delete the PlaceMarker.
list end

 

Tip: If you want to delete all PlaceMarkers  for this page, press SPACEBAR on the Remove All button or press ALT+L.

 

Important PlaceMarker Concepts

 

The following sections, PlaceMarker Keystrokes, Temporary versus Permanent  PlaceMarkers, and URL versus Domain PlaceMarkers, are key to understanding
 PlaceMarkers with JAWS.

 

PlaceMarker Keystrokes for Web Pages, HTML Documents, or Forms
list of 8 items
• Press CTRL+WINDOWS Key+K to insert a temporary    PlaceMarker.
• Press INSERT+SPACEBAR, M to select text between the    temporary PlaceMarker and your current cursor position.
• Press CTRL+SHIFT+K to open the PlaceMarker List dialog    box to add a new PlaceMarker, rename or change existing PlaceMarker    parameters, jump to
PlaceMarkers, or delete PlaceMarkers.
• Press K to jump to the next PlaceMarker.
• Press SHIFT+K to jump to the previous PlaceMarker.
• Press number row keys 7 through 0 to    hear the content of PlaceMarkers 1 through 4.
• Press SHIFT+ number row keys 7 through 0 to jump to PlaceMarkers 1 through 4.
• Press ALT+WINDOWS Key+K to speak all of the PlaceMarkers    on a Web page or in an HTML document.
list end

 

PlaceMarker Keystrokes for Word Documents
list of 3 items
• Press CTRL+WINDOWS Key+K to set a PlaceMarker at the    current cursor position. Only one PlaceMarker can be set per Word document.
• Press ALT+WINDOWS Key+K to return to the marker in a Word    document.
• Press INSERT+SPACEBAR, M to select text or items from the    marker to the current cursor position.
list end

 

Temporary Versus Permanent PlaceMarkers

 

You can add a temporary PlaceMarker anywhere on a Web page by pressing CTRL+WINDOWS Key+K. This lets you easily mark a spot that you  can return to later
by pressing K. Only one temporary  PlaceMarker may be set per Web page. If you later decide to move the temporary  PlaceMarker to a different place on
the Web page, just move the Virtual Cursor  to that new location and press CTRL+WINDOWS Key+K again.

 

If you want to make the temporary PlaceMarker permanent, press CTRL+SHIFT+K to open the PlaceMarker List dialog box and add it  to the list, which lets
you keep and maintain multiple PlaceMarkers on the Web  page, HTML document, or form. The last location where you set a temporary  PlaceMarker is saved
until you move it again, or remove the PlaceMarker from the  PlaceMarkers List dialog. You can browse to other Web pages, exit JAWS, even  restart your
computer, and your temporary and permanent PlaceMarkers are  preserved.

 

URL Versus Domain PlaceMarkers

 

JAWS lets you assign PlaceMarkers to either the current Web address (the URL  displayed in the Address bar) or domain (the overall Web site name). The
URL  (uniform resource locator) is the Web address displayed in the address bar. You  can only use PlaceMarkers assigned to the current URL when you are
visiting that  page.

 

Individual Web pages are contained within a domain. The domain's name is  usually the first portion of the page's Web address and ends with .com, .net,
 .org, .gov, .edu, or similar suffix. When you add a domain PlaceMarker to a Web  page, you can use that PlaceMarker on any page within the current domain.
Since  many sites use a consistent design for all of their pages, the placement of  links, graphics, buttons, and form fields is often similar. If this
is the case,  you can use a single domain PlaceMarker to navigate many other pages on the  site.

 

For example, if a Web site has a Search box located at the top of each page,  you can put a domain PlaceMarker there named "Search." You can then use this
 PlaceMarker to move to the Search box on any page in the domain, regardless of  the URL.

 

Advanced PlaceMarker Usage

 

The following describes other ways to customize and display PlaceMarkers.

 

Sharing PlaceMarkers

 

You can use Settings Packager to share your PlaceMarkers for a Web site with  other JAWS users. Settings Packager is a program that lets you save speech
and  sound schemes, PlaceMarkers, and personalized Web settings in a compressed .zip  file that you can send in an e-mail message, post on a Web site,
or copy to  removable storage media. You can also use Settings Packager to import the  settings contained in these .zip files into JAWS. To start Settings
Packager,  press INSERT+F2, select "Settings Packager," and press ENTER. For more information on using this program, open the  Settings Packager Help menu
and choose Help Topics.

 

To share your PlaceMarkers with other JAWS users without using Settings  Packager:

 

list of 4 items
1. Open your JAWS user settings folder from the Start Menu, All Programs,    JAWS X (where X is the JAWS version number), Explore JAWS, Explore My    Settings.

 

2. Move to the PlaceMarkers folder and press ENTER.
3. PlaceMarker information is stored in .PMI files. Locate the .PMI file with    the same name as the page containing the PlaceMarkers you want to share.

 

4. Copy this file and distribute it to other users. These users then need to    copy the .PMI file on their PlaceMarkers folder by going to the Start Menu,
   All Programs, JAWS X (where X is the JAWS version number), Explore JAWS,    Explore My Settings and open the PlaceMarkers folder. The users can now
   navigate that HTML page with your PlaceMarkers.
list end

 

Custom Page Summary

 

When you open an HTML page, the Custom Page Summary feature automatically  lists each PlaceMarker on the page and its associated text. This lets you  quickly
review the text located near your PlaceMarkers so you can hear any  changes or updates to those areas of the page. To enable or disable this  feature,
do the following:

 

list of 4 items
1. Open Settings Center (INSERT+F2) or Quick Settings    (INSERT+V).
2. In the Search edit box, type "PlaceMarker" without the quotes.
3. Press DOWN ARROW to move to Custom PlaceMarker Page    Summary in the filtered results of the tree view. (Note that for Web browsers,    this option
appears in both the Virtual Cursor Options group and the    Personalized Web Settings group.)
4. Press SPACEBAR to toggle through the following settings.
list end
list of 3 items
• Select "Speak PlaceMarkers on Page Load" to have JAWS read the name of    each PlaceMarker on the current page as well as the text that appears near
the    PlaceMarker's location.
• Select "List PlaceMarkers in Results Viewer on Page Load" to have JAWS    display the PlaceMarker information for the page in the Results Viewer. The
   Results Viewer provides a link with the name of the PlaceMarker and the text    that appears near the PlaceMarker's location on the page. You can use
the ARROW keys to move to a link and then press ENTER to move to that PlaceMarker.
• Select "Do Nothing" to have JAWS provide a custom page summary.
list end

Hi Adrian,

 

This was the only answer I could find when searching for how to remove placemarks or temporary placemarks.  Well, what I should say is that all the answers I found pretty much said this same thing.  But, when I placed a temporary placemark in a DOCX file, and tried to have Jaws report it's ASCII code or whatever it's called I couldn't get one.


Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

Mike,

 

Like you, I’m confused by Vaughn’s question. I’m not sure he’s using Word. If he is, you’re right that only one placemarker can be set, and it’s temporary. Set another placemarker, and the previous one is automatically removed. At any rate, that’s true through Outlook 2016.

 

As you know, it is possible to set more than one placemarker on webpages. I wonder if Vaughn is using some sort of semi-webpage text program.

 

Finally, to avoid confusion, the markers cited in the “featured snippet” are for revealing paragraph markers, an unrelated issue that came up on this list recently.

 

Vaughn, if you’ve solved the problem, great. Otherwise, please post the name and version of the program you’re using. Knowing Mike, he’ll either have the answer or find it for you.

Hi Vaughn,

 

I don't know if my answer is going to help you much but, here goes.  When you create a temporary placemark in a Word doc that's exactly what you're doing but, when you make a second placemark you're not making a second placemark, you're only moving the original placemark since only 1 placemark can be used at a time in a Word doc, from what I understand.

 

Knowing what version of Word you're running would be helpful along with which operating system, but since we're working ginerically the answer will be gineric as well.  Here you go:

Featured snippet from the web
Word - Remove all table of authority markers
list of 5 items
1. Click the Show/Hide Paragraph Markers tool on the Home tab to show the
Paragraph markers. (The rest of the directions will not work if this step is
not taken)
2. Press Ctrl+H to display the Find and Replace dialog box.
3. In the Find What box, enter ^19 TA.
4. Make sure that nothing is in the Replace With box.
5. Click Replace All.
list end
 


Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

Subject: Removing Marks in Word

 

Hello, listers,

 

I am doing a great deal of research for my final semester in graduate school. As a result I am marking spots in lengthy texts with CTL+Windows+K and finding them with ALT+Windows+K. How do I remove these markings?

 

Thank you,

 

Vaughn
