Q: How do I add a comment or free text to a structured item?
A: To add a comment to a structured SMARText item is referred to as "the click and type method".
The click and type method does not work with medications.
Activate the Structured Item
Left-click directly on top of the SMARText item the comment will be attached to. (Meaning, place your cursor within the SMARText item).
Add a Comment
- After left-clicking on the SMARText Item, start typing the desired comment. The comment box will not appear until you start typing.
- Click Save or press the Enter key on the keyboard.
The free-text comment will now be "attached" to the SMARText item.
To edit the comment, simply left-click on top of the comment, and press the spacebar on the keyboard. The Item Comment box will display, so that the comment can be edited.
