Adding a Text control

To help users understand the structure of a layout and get a general idea what the content groupings within the layout include, describe the content and the purpose of layout elements by including formatted text in cells and headers in a layout.

  1. Open the section that you want to modify.

  2. In the Design tab, from the Data display list, drag Text onto the work area.

    When you drag the Text control onto a cell in a cell-based layout, the control replaces the current contents of the cell.

  3. Optional:

    To specify additional options for the control, click the View properties icon.

    You can select a property to source the data from a page list or page group or define the data format of the control.

    For more information, see Configuration options for the Text control

  4. Click Submit.
