Creating new doc from existing doc in Microsoft Word

I have a client who has lots of information in a Word document.  She has the need to quickly select items such a paragraphs of text, bullets, and other elements and have them display in order in the new doc.  Basically she opens the doc and "goes shopping" for the right elements she needs to put into the new doc.

Currently the way she does it with copying and paste.  She does so much copying and pasting her fingers hurt.  

Is there a plugin or add on that would allow her to single mouse click the elements into the doc?  If shortcut keys could be used to point there the element goes in the new doc that would be even nicer.

I know about macros  but she is not savy enough to know how to use macros.  Looking for something quick and simple.

If this cannot be done easily in Word, could you recommend other word processing software that would accomplish what she wants?
