App Background

Hello, again - seems like I should just make a single post with a bunch of questions :laughing:

Is there any way to change the layout of the background, change the font and/or font size?

Looking forward to all the amazing ideas! :unicorn:

You can change it with custom rich text using things like insert text instert text

Hello again Carrabre :upside_down_face:,

So what I mean is the app background itself. Like setting tables, so that say two Text Boxes can be beside each other as opposed to ontop of one another – and changing the entire background - not just a RichText box – that I can do with coding :stuck_out_tongue:

Looking forward to your reply. :unicorn:

Pretty much what you see is what you get. All components are stacked from top to bottom It would be nice to someday place components in a table format, but at this time it’s not an option. You can use markdown tables to build a grid style layout of static text, but not for individual components. You can’t control the background other than selecting your app’s theme.


Good morning Jeff,

Thank you so much for the follow-up.

A question, unrelated to the App Background, how would a person edit a list of items.

So lets say I gave them a list of items option

Even when I turn on the edit function, it doesnt give me an option to open the list to edit it.

Looking forward to your help! :upside_down_face::unicorn:

That’s a choice component. You can’t edit items within a choice component. You would have to use a link to screen button or a tab that gives you access to the source sheet that’s used to populate the choice component.

Hello Jeff,

Thank you for such a quick response.

Do you have maybe a screenshot series, or screen capture video showing how I would set that up?

Looking forward to your assistance. :slight_smile::unicorn:

It’s no different than editing a record any other way. You know how to turn on editing on a tab. Just create a tab that points to the sheet that contains the choices.

Hello Jeff,

Wow, how silly of me. lol :upside_down_face:

Thank you. :unicorn:
