    Narrative fields widget: make it more user friendly

    Asked by unicornwritersconference on March 18, 2014 at 07:00 PM

     

    When I try to add the narrative fields widget. I click the "get now" button in the top right hand corner of the screen and it automatically takes me to this: (screenshot)

    However, I don't know what to do with it.

    I tried to put in text in the template box but it didn't let me place the fields I need where I need them and then there is no way to modify the fields or text.

     

    There is no way it was desgned this poorly, there has to be some directions somewhere on how to use it.I mean that is basic program stuff, ie make a manuel lol. I am just really frusterated at what should be a simple thing.

    thank you for your help.

    Actually , all you need to do is to add as many text boxes as you need in between

    The number at the end defines the lenght of the textbox, please see this form

    I added basically these values:  (if you notice the last field is the longer one as I put 10 for the lenght)

    I am a sentence with a {Text Box:5} field.
    This is another example {Text Box:6}
    This is the third example {Text Box:10}

    However, you are right, I am forwarding to our developers your comments, as this can be enhanced and can be made user friendly
