Text Formatting Within Entry Fields

by Gustaaf Van Moorsel last modified Nov 19, 2014

It is not necessary to format the typed text within the PST by, for example, including line feeds. The PST will automatically wrap each line as needed. Indeed, if previously formatted text is imported or included from an external file, the only way to deformat it is to delete the control characters manually. Sophisticated formatting, such as italics, mathematical symbols, and font changes, are not allowed in text entry fields.

LATEX control sequences may be used in text boxes; however, no LATEX processing is performed by the program, and all such commands will appear in their raw format in the saved/submitted XML file.
