Form customization takes too long! Any ideas for increasing efficiency?

Hi all,

 

I'm changing the look and feel for my app, but I'm having trouble customizing forms as there is no multiple control selection (as they are all separated among Data cards). Therefore I have to select one control at a time, and change one property at a time, for 20 screens (1 form per screen, average 5 controls per form).

 

This will take forever and is not resilient to changes (if there's a change in a Data Card I'd have to do it all again for that control).

 

Any ideas to be more efficient updating the the look and feel of forms?

Hi @federicoleal ,

I share the frustration that your employer has caused with this oversight (a styling brush from Word/Excel would have done the job very nicely).

Tip #2 from matthewdevaney.com  @mdevaney may be of assistance, but I always take the "pain" at my first design and update settings on everything from colours on all elements to fonts/sizes/weights and some positioning on Variables set at App OnStart, so all are very easy to change.

You can also look at Components, but that is not going to assist with your current situation much.
