General tips for using Word with UNICOM Intelligence Interviewer - Paper
All of the UNICOM Intelligence Interviewer - Paper commands are macros, which are protected so that you cannot edit them. If you open the Macros dialog in Word, you will see these macros listed along with your own macros. Although it is possible to access UNICOM Intelligence Interviewer - Paper functions using the macros, you are recommended to always use the commands on the Paper menu or the tools on the Paper toolbar.
Copy and Paste
As you format your paper questionnaire, you can use the Word Copy and Paste commands. These commands are particularly useful when you are creating and modifying Looks. However, do not copy and paste any of the questionnaire content contained in the UNICOM Intelligence Interviewer - Paper bookmarks. This content comes from the questionnaire definition, and if you need to change it in any way you should do so in the authoring tool. You can then use the Update Document feature to transfer the changes to the paper questionnaire in UNICOM Intelligence Interviewer - Paper.
Word toolbars
When you work in UNICOM Intelligence Interviewer - Paper, you might find it helpful to display the Word Formatting toolbar and the Tables and Borders toolbar.
Table gridlines
UNICOM Intelligence Interviewer - Paper displays questionnaire items and Looks within Word tables. Selecting Show Gridlines from the Word Table menu displays gray lines around each of the cells in the table. Displaying these table gridlines can be very helpful for determining the position of the questionnaire content when you are creating or modifying Looks. However, it is easy to confuse the table gridlines with table borders, so you might think that you have borders in your Look when you do not. Therefore, you might want to hide the gridlines when you are formatting questionnaires.
Show All and Hidden Text
UNICOM Intelligence Interviewer - Paper uses various nonprinting characters in Looks. You might therefore find it easier to hide the nonprinting characters when you format a questionnaire. Hide the nonprinting characters by deselecting all of the options in the Formatting Marks group on the View tab in the Word Options dialog and by using the Show/Hide button on the Standard toolbar. However, when you are designing Looks, you might want to display the hidden characters.
The fields in the Word document are not normally updated between loading a questionnaire and printing it. This is most noticeable when you are using a page field in Word (for example, “Page 1 of 12”) because the total number of pages might change when you apply Looks. However, you can update a field at any time by selecting the field and pressing F9.
