After writing or modifying the formula, click on OK if you want to insert the formula as it is shown, or Cancel if you want to exit without saving changes. The WIRIS editor window will close.

Formulae are treated as any other kind of object:

  • You can select formulae by either clicking on them, or by dragging the cursor over them while holding the SHIFT key.
  • You can erase formulae by selecting them and pressing delete, or by moving the cursor after them and pressing the delete key. If you delete a formula accidentally, you can undo it by pressing the usual CTRL+Z.
  • You can cut, copy and paste formulae in the usual way, by pressing CTRL+X, CTRL+C and CTRL+V; this is particularly useful when you have to write lots of similar formulae.
  • You can also drag&drop a formula with the mouse.
