    Forms Designer Adding Logo and Text Fields

    I have a few questions on how to add certain elements in the Pastel Forms Designer:

    1) How to add a company logo?

    2) How to add a text field or text box that uses more than 1 line?

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    It's a bit difficult to explain in words (a remote desktop session would be more effective), but here goes:

    1) You need to have your logo file (preferably in jpg or bmp format) sized and saved in your company folder. Then, in Forms Designer, click on Insert...Picture, and then drag the rough dimensions of the picture onto the place you want the logo to appear. Then, in the box at the bottom right, you need to click on the word "Picture", which will reveal the browse icon - ... . Click on the browse icon and locate your logo file. The picture box will now reflect your logo. It is important that you crop the picture box to fit exactly the dimensions of the logo, otherwise it may appear stretched or cropped.

    2) In Forms Designer, click on Insert...Text, and then make the text box height sufficiently long for the number of lines that you think you will need. Then, in the box at the bottom right, replace the word "Label1" with your text. After pressing Enter, the necessary carriage returns will be made in line with the text box dimensions.

    Thank you. Figured it out now. I am a graphic designer so this interface is very difficult for me to work with. But anyway I am making good headway now thanks to you.

    Thanks Again Neville.
