Applying compound Looks
You format compound questions by applying compound Looks. Select the compound question in the Questionnaire Items list, and then select the required compound Look in the Looks list. UNICOM Intelligence Interviewer - Paper applies the default subLooks within the compound Look.
The types of subLooks are:
Question text. Display the name, short name, text, and instructions of the component questions.
Compound separator. Format the space between the question texts and the answers.
Shared list. Display the shared list. The shared list represents the categories of categorical questions and the subquestions of grid and numeric grid questions.
Categorical. Display mark fields for categorical questions.
Grid. Display the categories and mark fields for grid questions. This type is also known as categorical grid subLook.
Numeric grid. Display the categories and character fields for numeric grid questions.
After you have applied a compound Look to a compound question, you might need to make small manual changes to the formatting. This is particularly true in compound questions that contain grid or numeric grid questions. For example, you might need to resize the columns in the answer portion of any grid and numeric grid questions in the compound question. It is generally easier to make these adjustments in Normal view and showing the table gridlines. Remember that any manual formatting you do will be lost when you apply another Look or update the document to a new version of the questionnaire definition.
Sometimes, there is more than one subLook of a particular type in a compound question. You can then change the subLooks that are applied by defining different subLooks as defaults and reapplying the compound Look. You set the default subLooks in the Look Organizer.
To apply a compound Look
1 Click in the compound question, and then click Paper > Apply Looks.
The Apply Looks dialog opens. The compound question is displayed in the preview pane. Click in the preview pane to zoom in and out.
2 Select a compound Look from the Looks list, and then click OK.
UNICOM Intelligence Interviewer - Paper applies the default subLooks in the compound Look to the different parts of the compound question. To stop the process, click Cancel; any items that have already been updated keep the new Look.
