Rich Text in Memo Fields

The Memo field types are more flexible and can save rich text into a field value. This lets you display content such as images and formatted text.

Enabling a Memo Field to Save Rich Text

To enable a memo field to save rich text:

  1. In the Administration tool, edit the field.
  2. In the Options tab, select Use Rich Text Format.
    When you switch from rich text to plain text, the application deletes the images or text formatting.

Adding Rich Text to an Enabled Memo Field

To add rich text to an enabled memo field:

  1. Check out and open a file.
  2. Copy an image file or rich text from the file system and paste it into the memo field. You can also copy the image from a word-processing program.
    Right-click in the memo field to access text formatting tools.
