The Forms Editor - Field Menu - Insert Data Field - Select Form Message option is used to display the Fields - [Form Type] List screen from which
the Form Message field option may be selected to display the Form Messages screen from which a Form Message line may be selected to add to the current form.
The fields included in this list vary depending on the current Form Type and Section. To add a field to the Form:
- Select the Form Message Line on the list.
- Press [Enter].
- The Form Message field initially appear as a block of shaded characters equal to the maximum field width.
- It is placed at the current cursor position in Cut mode.
- The Field Width and Alignment may then be adjusted, and the field positioned and pasted on the form.
Clerks are able to manage/edit the text of the Form Message lines (normally managed in the Configuration Manager) in Forms Editor by selecting a Form Message line and pressing [F3] (if their Security Levels allow it).
This allows the person editing the form to change the message (and therefore what prints on the form) at any time without having to exit the Forms Editor.
