Formatting the profile text
The section of the page in which you edit the main profile text of your organisation works much like a limited version of Microsoft Word. You have the options to include basic formatting, such as headings, bold, and italics, as well as including images that illustrate your work. Below you will find an explanation of each of the features of the editor.
Undo/Redo: To undo or redo any changes made to the text, use these buttons.
Text formatting: by selected an option from the these section you can apply one of three pre-defined styles to a block of text:
- Paragraph: regular paragraphs of text
- Section heading: used to label a section of text (for example see "Editing your information" on this page).
- Subheading: used to further break up a section of text (for example see "Locations and themes" on this page).
Bold: to make text appear bold. First highlight the text, then click this button.
Italics: to make text appear in italics. First highlight the text, then click this button.
Remove formatting: to remove all formatting from a piece of text, highlight the text and click this button. This function is useful in cases where text pasted from other applications, such as Word, appears strangely.

Lists: to start a bulleted or numbered list click one of these buttons. Each time enter is pressed, a new list item will be created. To end the list, press enter twice.
