Searching the Help
To search for information in the Help, type a word or phrase in the Search box. When you enter a group of words, OR is inferred. You can use Boolean operators to refine your search.
Results returned are case insensitive. However, results ranking takes case into account and assigns higher scores to case matches. Therefore, a search for "cats" followed by a search for "Cats" would return the same number of Help topics, but the order in which the topics are listed would be different.
|A single word
|Topics that contain the word "cat". You will also find its grammatical variations, such as "cats".
You can specify that the search results contain a specific phrase.
"cat food" (quotation marks)
Topics that contain the literal phrase "cat food" and all its grammatical variations.
Without the quotation marks, the query is equivalent to specifying an OR operator, which finds topics with one of the individual words instead of the phrase.
Two or more words in the same topic
|Either word in a topic
|Topics that do not contain a specific word or phrase
|Topics that contain one string and do not contain another
cat ^ mouse
|A combination of search types

- Creating and editing forms
Using the drawing canvas
When you access Form Designer to create a new form, you are provided with a drawing canvas on which you build the form.
To work effectively with the canvas, you should know the following:
- The structure of the canvas.
- How to size your forms on the canvas.
- How to position multiple objects.
The canvas contains a grid to which all design objects are referenced. Click Grid Preview to see the grid.
- The grid coordinates start at (0,0) in the top left corner of the canvas. The X (horizontal) coordinates increase as you move to the right. The Y (vertical) coordinates increase as you move down.
- There is approximately a 3 to 1 ratio between X units and Y units. For example, 30 X units cover approximately the same amount of space as 10 Y units.
- For best results, try to use even X Y coordinates for objects you place on the canvas. The space required to display one character is 2x2 and, overall, the client displays better when you use even coordinates.
