This article will show you a few tools to help format and enter text in your Text Field. These tools will display with most major text boxes.
The CivicClerk system treats each word as a separate piece of text when using Text Formatting tools. This means that the use of one tool will affect only text highlighted by the cursor. However, using the Paragraph Formatting tools affects the entire paragraph. Check out more information on Paragraph Formatting tools.
