ZoomGrants prioritizes the consistent readability of text responses on the review side (where the program administrators and application reviewers read submitted applications), so ZoomGrants text boxes will save unformatted text only (no formatted lists, bolds, italics, underlines, unique fonts or font sizes etc.).
However, for long-form responses to paragraph-style questions, it can be helpful to use some basic formatting to delineate different sections of the response, highlight specific points, or list certain information. There are other ways that applicants can add simple formatting to their longer answers:
- ALL CAPS can create headers within the text.
- Hyphens, letters, or numbers can be used to create lists.
- Asterisks can *highlight* certain words.
