Underline document text with a few keystrokes

To add a single border to your text, simply type three hyphens (---) on a new line below the text. To add a double border, type three equal signs (===). Zoho Writer will automatically add the border to the previous line of text.

Insert merge fields quickly with a hashtag

If you are using mail merge, you can insert merge fields quickly and easily by typing a hashtag (#) in the editor. A list of all the main fields from your data source will appear. Similarly, in a subform table, place the cursor inside the table and type # for the main fields and the corresponding subforms to be listed. You can then select a field from the list and insert it into your template.
