Text content specification

  • Text format

    1. Distributed text alignment is not supported;

    2. Because Office has differences in compatibility, to ensure maximum compatibility the text box should be more(bigger) than the text content to ensure that no line breaks occur under each version

    3. Multiple fonts are not available in a single text box, which can lead to misaligned conversion text

    4. Advanced text effects (text animation, 3D effects, etc.) are not available;

    5. Use __ (key combination "shift" + "-") for underlining in fill-in-the-blank questions, space + underline style will cause page misalignment

  • Unwanted content and elements need to be removed, element invisibility is not supported, otherwise, there is a risk that normal content may be affected;
