Need directions to store keystrokes in Xerox 610 Memorywriter

I can't seem to locate my operator's manual. I thought I could remember the keystrokes to store data, but it's not working. Could be that I am doing something wrong. Can anyone help?

You can store phrases by -
1 - turn on the AUTO RETURN button above the keyboard
2 - hold down the button on either side of the spacebar, type a titile (any character from a - z)(SPECIAL ENTRY light will turn on)
3 - hit the +/= key (if you hear a beep, it means this title is already used. Press STOP and start over with another title.)
4 - type the phrase
