In most areas of the accounts text can be amended in the Enable Editing and Edit Text modes shown below.

Enable editing 
located beneath the View tab below and requires a password obtainable from your superuser, this role is commonly reserved for a manager.


Edit text

Other Editing
Some areas of text cannot be amended by using these functions and instead the style of text applied will need to be changed to one that can be edited.

1. Check the style applied to the text by clicking the Change Style icon beneath the Style tab.

2. Take a note of the style applied, tick TextStdInput style and click OK.

3. You will now be able to overtype the text. Once complete, click Change Style again and tick the original style applied to set the format back to default.
