We all appreciate well formatted and neatly outlined documents. These tips should help you when entering and formatting your Standards in the Standards Catalog. Standards are viewed by the Program Directors when they complete their Self Studies and Reviewers , in some cases, when they review the Self Studies.
When creating Standards within Jura, you can enter text directly into the text boxes. Each text box has various formatting features that will allow you to edit the data entered to your liking. The features allow you to make text bold, underline text, change the font style and size, bullet important items, add numbering, add indentation, create tables, adjust text alignment, highlight items, add images, create hyperlinks, and add videos. These options are shown across the top toolbar of the "Standard Brief" text box. Please see the image below.
In addition to manually entering data, you can also copy data from another text editing software, such as Microsoft Word, and paste the text into Jura. While it is best practice to always paste any text copied from a different software as "Plain Text" to ensure that all text entered is uniform throughout your Standards Catalog, we have incorporated a feature that will allow you to remove formatting from text copied over and paste into Jura with formatting. Below is an example of information that we would like to copy over to Jura.
This is how the text looks in Jura when it is paste into the text box with it's original formatting.
As you can see in the example above, the text paste into Jura with its original formatting appears to have excessive spacing between the words "mission" and "is". Also, the text is displayed in two different font types.
To fix this, click the icon that looks like a "T" with a slanted strike through it. This will ensure that all text is uniform. Please see the image below.
NOTE: In some cases it may be necessary to further adjust spacing.
You can also paste the text into Jura as "Plain Text" by using the following tips:
- Some web browsers, such as Google Chrome, allow you to right-click within the area that you would like to paste the text, and then select "Paste as plain text". Please see the image below.
- On devices running a Windows operating system the keyboard shortcut to paste as plain text is: Ctrl+ Shift+V
- On devices running a Mac operating system the keyboard shortcut to paste as plain text is: Shift+Option+Command+V
We hope this helps!
