In the world of false alarm reduction, one of the most common tools used is the printed word. This can be in many forms, whether it is a brochure, an invoice, or an informational letter. We send out hundreds of letters on a daily basis. Fortunately, CryWolf ® automates much of this for us. Occasionally, we want to accent certain parts of a letter by changing the font size, the print color, or even adding bullet points. Before I discovered that this was possible within CryWolf®, I was creating the letters in Microsoft Word® and then copying it into CryWolf®. The discovery of these features within the program itself made creating and editing letters that much easier.
If you weren't aware that this was possible, let me show you how easy it is to accomplish. To access these features, go to the maintenance section. Once in Maintenance, choose “Add/Edit” Letters from the Forms menu.
Choose the letter that you wish to edit from the pulldown menu.
Then go to the Letter Body tab (circled in red).
Highlight the text that you wish to emphasize, and right click your mouse. This opens up a pop-up that gives several options. Be sure to check out all of these options. For example, the Dialogs Options provides Text, Paragraph, and Formatting changes. There are also Tables and Image options.
Today, we are going to focus changing the color of text by choosing the “Color” option, but try out the other features when you have a chance.
This opens the Color pop up window. Simply choose the color and click the “OK” button.
I also made the text bold to make it stand out more.
Save the changes, and you are finished. Have fun playing with these features!
