When creating or editing questions that require longer text responses - eg Abstract, Biography - you can select different text editor types, depending on your requirements.

(See Custom questions ) The options are below, with formatting options listed.





Text boxes on forms will appear as below for each option. 


Plain Text



 Type 1,  permits italics, superscript, subscript and symbols.



 Type 2, permits italics, bold, superscript, subscript, symbols and lists (bullet points and numbered).



Type 3, permits italics, bold, superscript, subscript, symbols and lists (bullet points and numbered) and tables.



Type 4, permits italics, bold,  superscript, subscript, symbols and lists (bullet points and numbered), tables and images.



When answering long text questions, usually for abstracts, we always recommend submitters copy and paste from WORD or similar, for formatting consistency.
