If you prefer to create your document in Word or Google Docs, updated formatting may be required. When data is copied, it brings with it coding that is happening in the background. Sometimes this coding can interfere with editing features in text areas in SEEDS.
If you print a form and see that the text is very small, it may be because of the coding mentioned above. To update the formatting,
- Open the form.
- Highlight the text.
- Click Format.
- Click Clear Formatting.
It is always advised to create a table directly in the SEEDS document. When tables are created outside of SEEDS, for example in Google Doc or Word document, the copied and pasted table will make all of the other text in the form appear much smaller in the print view. For this reason, it is recommended to create the table directly in SEEDS.
Helpful Tip: Create a fake user in your district with templates for tables. SEEDS allows copy/paste from one SEEDS form to another.
Font and Size and Color
In the old text editor, you could "control" font and size in the edit mode of a form, however the font and size always follow a uniform format in the print preview, as the forms are legal documents. Since you can't print with different fonts and sizes, the new text editor does not offer different options for these things.
Similar to the current text editor, the font will be formatted to a uniform font, color, and size in the print view in order to match requirements of a legal document. This means that print preview will not show things that are in color in the edit mode.
