Edit text in functional band header


J

When using functional bands, there are two header shapes above the band. I've
entered text in both bands and used ShapeSheet to modify the height of the
headers to .5. I have done this on 2 different sheets. In one sheet, I can
edit the text in the top header when I double click the shape. I cannot edit
the text of the bottom header unless I select the shape and start typing,
which overrides all the previous text.

In the second sheet, I cannot edit the text in the top header. I can only
edit the bottom header text when double clicking on the shape.

How can I edit the text in both shapes? And is there a way to set the height
separate for each of these header shapes?

thanks!

Select the lower part of the header, then select the Texttool from the toolbar (the
capital A). That will put you into text edit mode. Exit by clicking the pointer tool.

And is there a way to set the height
separate for each of these header shapes?

Select the top part of the shape, menu Window -> Show Shapesheet
edit the cell User.GridRounding, it is normally 5mm*Sheet1!User.AntiScale
(0.25*Sheet1!User.AntiScale in US unit pages)
Change the 5mm or 0.25 to whatever suits.

Selecting the texttool from the toolbar allowed me to edit the text in both
header shapes. Not sure why I didn't think of that before! Guess I was just
used to double clicking the shape. Thank you!

However, when changing the formula of the User.GridRounding cell in the
Shapesheet screen....it still changes the height of both the upper and lower
parts of the header. And when I select just the lower header shape, I do not
have the User.GridRounding cell option. No big deal...I can live with both of
them the same height.
