2.5 About Text Sections

To add text to a Websheet page, you create a Text section. You can type directly into a text section, or copy and paste content from a spreadsheet. Copying and pasting from a spreadsheet creates a new section for each spreadsheet row.

  1. Run the Websheet application. See "Running a Websheet".

  2. From the Create menu, select New Section.

  3. When prompted for the section type, select Text and click Next.

  4. On Create Text Sections select either:

    • Create single text section

    • Create multiple text section from Spreadsheet
