How to make an interactive worksheet

Once you have created your worksheet, either from scratch or from an existing document, you can convert it into an interactive worksheet by adding different types of questions. You will also be able to add other elements such as links, videos or MP3 files.

In the sidebar you can select the different types of fields that you can add. Just click on one of them to select that type of field.

Add a field to the worksheet

To add the field to the worksheet, place the mouse over the position where you want to add it and click the left mouse button. Keep the mouse button pressed, move the mouse to set the size you want the field to be and release the mouse button when it has the chosen size.

You have now added the field to the worksheet. Once added, you can configure its options from the sidebar.

If you want to change any of the options once the field is already added, just click it with the mouse and the options will be displayed in the sidebar.

Move and resize a field

If you want to move a field, place the mouse over that field and hold down the left mouse button. Move the mouse and you will see the cursor changes to position arrows. Move the field to the desired new position and release the mouse button there. If you have more fields in the tab, you will see guides to align the field.

You can also move a field with the keyboard to better adjust its position. Just select the field and press the Ctrl key (or Cmd on Mac) and the arrow key in the direction you want to move the field.

If you prefer to change the size of the field, place the mouse over one of the circles at the corners of the field until you see the cursor change to an arrow.

Press the left mouse button and hold it down while moving the mouse. Release the mouse button when the field has the chosen size. If you have more fields in the tab, you will see some guides to align the field and better adjust its size.

Duplicate and delete fields

If you want to duplicate a field, you can do so by clicking on the duplicate icon that appears in the top bar once you have selected the field. This will create a new field with the same data as the selected field, which you can then modify and move to its final position.

You can also copy and paste fields using the keyboard, with the key combination Ctrl + C (or Cmd + C on Mac) to copy a field and Ctrl + V (or Cmd + V on Mac) to paste the field.

If you want to delete a field, you can do so by clicking on the trash can icon that appears in the top bar once you have selected the field. Don't worry, before deleting it permanently you will be asked for confirmation.

Undo and redo

We all do mistakes and creating a worksheet will be no exception, that's why the editor has undo and redo features. If you have made a change on your worksheet and later decide that this was not what you wanted you can click on the Undo button (the one on the left) or press Ctrl + z in your keyboard and that last change will be removed. But if you change your mind, the redo feature can be used via the Redo button (the one on the right) or by pressing Ctrl + Shift +z in your keyboard.

Once you have finished editing the worksheet, you can save the changes by clicking on the "Save worksheet" button at the top right of the page. If the worksheet has not yet been published, you will have to fill in the data and publish it on the screen that will appear.
