Editing text in a case

The case viewer contains multiple text fields that can be used to add textual content to a teaching file case. The text content will be on the left side of the screen in landscape mode, or below the images in portrait mode.

Example text field

The Case Information section allows the user to add metadata about the case, including the modality, specialty. It is essential for the case creator to add as much information about the case, including modality, specialty, etc., since this data will later to used to filter cases during search. Modalities or Subspecialties on the left side of the Home page can be clicked to filter the cases.

The Authors section allows the user to select the author(s) of the case. Clicking the name adds or removes the user from the author list. Typing the first few letters of the user”s real name (not username) will advance the scrolling list to that person. For instance, typing “John” will advance the list to all user”s named “John”. The names are in alphabetical order, based on first name. An administrator user can add usernames and real names via the settings tool, under “User Manager”.

The other text areas, including History, Findings, Discussion, etc. can also be edited by clicking on the respective section. A text editor popup will appear. Click save after text entry is complete. Some of the sections are defined as “required”, although this is not currently enforced.
