Built4 Crafts Edit Mode


To use this help file, click on the plus sign to open or maximize and the minus sign to close or minimize.

The DATA MODE has two main functions: to add a new record (project) and to edit a record (project). This is the section all the data entry, editing, and deleting is done.

The two action icons on the TOOLBAR provide important functions:

toolbar
  1. To ENTER your work and save the information or to DELETE the entire record. Caution: Once deleted, there is no recovery of information. Enter in all the information that you want associated with your project and click on the ENTER icon. It is just that easy!
  2. Record indicator will display the record count and provide a navigation option using the arrows.
  3. Notice the MODE INDICATOR is displaying EDIT MODE.

To enter a new project, begin by entering the name of the project. [1]project

This is a required field.

To Edit: While in the DATA MODE, simply click on the name and highlight the name, then make your changes.

TIP: If you want to group your projects, it is easy enough to group the same type projects together using the name field. To group flowers in the ARTS category, name your flower with the group name first followed by the name. Example: Flower Tulip, Flower Rose.

You may want to highlight your record. Check the FAVORITE square and the name of the project will turn red.

To edit: ‘un-check’ the square, just click on it and the project’s name returns to black.

To rate the project using a star method, use the drop down selector.

To edit remove the rating, while in the DATA MODE, select the drop down indicator and choose the star rating you prefer. If none is desired, choose the ‘~’ selection.

insert photo

Adding a picture is very simple. Click on the small camera icon [1], the browser will let you choose any picture on your computer. A suggestion is to make a folder to keep all the photos together. You may want to keep this with the program files or in a location familiar with you.

Add as much information as you want to each project. (Remember only the name of the project is required.)

You can easily enter in as much information as you would like. Category, timeframe, cost, ... It is all up to you! Simply click on the field and begin typing. A few fields have options. Example: cost offers a 5-$ option to choose from.

info

To edit remove the cost, choose the ‘~’ option.

A sub-category is also available to help sort your projects further.

A yield for your project also can be display.

To edit any of these fields, simply click and highlight the field and make any changes required.

If you have a PDF,doc or text file that is associated with your project and would like to keep it available with this record, click on the document icon. Your browser will appear and allow you to locate the file you want to attach to this record. The best way is to keep a folder with all your project files together and do not move this file. Built4 Crafts will remember the location only of the file, it does NOT store the file within the program itself. The browser icon will turn BLUE when there is a document associated with the project.

notes

Notes can be used for many different options. Tips, alternative uses, gift ideas. Simply type in your note. NOTE: the PASTE icon that is showing in this view is for INSTRUCTIONS not NOTES. Notes need to be typed in or copied (Ctrl-C) and pasted (Ctrl-V) on Windows keyboard.

The main lower section has 3 divisions: supplies, instructions, and notes. Designed to allow for easy 'copy and paste' from projects found on the internet or email, it is also possible to type in the project.

The supplies section can display all the materials that will be required for the project. To type in your supplies, simply begin typing in this section.

To copy and paste, first copy (Ctrl-C) the list of supplies or materials and then press the PASTE ICON [2] located in the upper right corner of the SUPPLIES section. This will remove any formatting from the original project, [1] paste the materials into the supplies section and your projects will all have a uniformed look.supplies

instructions

The instruction section can display the step by step instructions that will be required for the project. To type in your instructions, simply begin typing in this section.

To 'copy and paste', first copy (Ctrl-C) the list of instructions and then press the PASTE ICON [2] located in the upper right corner of the INSTRUCTIONS section. This will remove any formatting from the original project, [1] paste the instructions into the correct section and your projects will all have a uniformed look.
