Looks and templates
Looks are blueprints for how questions and information items from the questionnaire definition are to appear in the paper questionnaire. Looks control:
which parts of the questionnaire definition are displayed and which are hidden
the display of standard texts and phrases that are not part of the questionnaire definition, such as Select one answer only
how the text is laid out on the page
how the text is formatted.
There are Looks for each of the different types of questionnaire items, such as categorical questions, numeric questions, and information items. You can organize Looks into Look groups (for example, based on the type of questionnaires they are to be used for and the types of formatting involved).
All Word documents are based on templates. Unlike Looks, templates apply to an entire document and determine its basic structure, including the default page size and orientation, margins, headers and footers, and paragraph styles. Templates can also include standard text that you want to appear at the beginning or end of the paper questionnaire.
In UNICOM Intelligence Interviewer - Paper, Looks and templates interact to make formatting quick and easy. For example, by changing the paragraph styles used in a Look, you can quickly change the appearance of all of the questions in the questionnaire that Look is applied to. Using Looks and templates, you can standardize designs across paper questionnaires.
