The fields of the current record can be modified in the Database View. Place the cursor in the text box of the field you want to change and click. The cursor changes to an I-beam insertion cursor, indicating that text editing is in progress.

Commands in the Edit pull-down menu used to modify text (and/or labels) are:

Undo / Redo Reverses the effect of the previous edit action.

Cut Removes a section of selected text. The text is saved in the clipboard.

Copy A section of selected text is moved to the clipboard. It is not deleted from the text box.

Paste The content of the clipboard is inserted after the cursor in the current text box.

Clear A section of selected text is removed. It is not saved in the clipboard.

To move forward between fields, press the [Tab] key. To move backward between fields, press the [Shift] and [Tab] keys at the same time. To update an existing record simply press the [Enter] key, or select the Update Record option from the Database menu.

By double clicking any of the field names in the "Field Order" panel of thePreferences>Data Entry Options dialog box you can force HomePrint Labels to skip the selected field as you [Tab] from field to field in the database entry screen. Dragging the fields into the sequence you prefer for entry makes HomePrint Labels change the default order of data entry. Selecting Clear from the Database pull-down menu removes all information from the fields of the current record and deselects all groups.
