General Management of Paragraphs

Like documents, paragraphs can be drawn up, moved, nested, copied, duplicated and deleted. Paragraphs can be compiled in the different horizontal tabs. In the case of questionnaire pages there are two sections: main content and marginalia. Paragraphs are also drawn up on transaction pages. Here one can find the horizontal tabs summary, tranactions, wait and results. Which paragraphs can be elected is dependent upon the respective section. In the following chapter the operation of paragraphs will be described in detail. The paragraphs themselves will be further discussed on the following pages. 

Selecting Paragraphs

Existing paragraphs can be opened or closed. Furthermore several paragraphs can be open simultaneously. The opening and closing of a paragraph is controlled by the arrow in the top right corner of the corresponding paragraph.

When the arrow at the top right corner is pointing upward, the paragraph is open. When it is pointing downward, the paragraph is closed.

Adding Paragraphs

A new paragraph is added by clicking the button 'create' below the paragraphs.

After clicking 'create' the window depicted in the screenshot to the right will open.

Creating a new paragraph

By keeping the cursor on the i-icon, information about the paragraph type will be displayed. The selection of the paragraph type will be confirmed by clicking 'select'. The new paragraph will always be set in the last spot underneath the existing paragraphs. Paragraph can, however, as described in the previous chapter, be moved.

Nested Paragraphs

Paragraphs can, similar to documents, be nested. The nesting is created in the same manner as a paragraph. Question groups and box groups are used for this purpose (depending on the application). To create a sub paragraph, a further section with a 'create' button is added. To fill a question group or group of boxes with content the 'create' button within the question/box group must be used. .
