Using the Rich Text Editor to enter and/or modify Comments:

There is a built in Rich Text Editor available - accessed by Double-Clicking within the Comments field.

This Rich Text Editor provides word processing level features - most of which - you will find familiar like bold, underline, italics, highlighting plus font and font color selections.

If you have opened the Rich Text Editor dialog to make your entry, to save your entry, Choose Save on the Editor Options Ribbon Menu.




Alert - Check the Alert box if you want an "Account Alert" message displayed on the Information Bar on the Subscribers Form whenever this record is viewed.  

This Alert message is particularly useful if the Account needs follow up, is receiving special care, or a special resolution process is underway, or in other ways - needs to be recognized as needing the Comments information viewed by you (or whomever might also view this record) before communicating with the Subscriber.


Find - Open the Comments Form's Rich Text Editor and locate the Find Icon to find a particular word or phrase anywhere within the Comments field.

So, use the Find function to quickly locate a specific entry (see below).




Enter the word or phrase you are searching for in the Find What field.

Check the Match whole word only box if you want the search result limited to the exact word or phrase you entered (versus a portion of it).

Check the Match case box if you want your search results to exactly match the upper and lower case of your Find what entry



Find dialog


Once you've located the required text, Click the Cancel button to close the Find dialog.

View or change what you've located, as needed.
