A report formatting tip for FIVE

One of our customers called in to ask about the formatting of the reports that are generated in FIVE. Specially, she wanted to know why FIVE mashed all the sentences together and didn't allow her to format the Description field into paragraphs. I explained that it does. It's done in the Project Properties dialog box. Here's how:

report-formatting

Notice the line break in the text. That's how it's done. If you want a carriage return / line break, add the break at the end of your line. If you want a space in between lines, add one more as shown in the graphic above.

Then your report will look like this:

report-formatting-2

I would usually just add the question to be answered by the file and any scale or other necessary notes.

Hopefully, this tip helps you better organize your report's Description field.
