Contents Science Bundle - Elementary Step 2 - Layout Fields
Grade: K-12
Required products: Tool Factory Database V2
Instructions
Once all the fields are created, the second step is to make the database look good. When the LAYOUT FIELDS icon is first clicked, the computer simply gathers up all the fields and throws them on the page in random order. Drag the fields around to get rid of overlap.

Notice there are 2 tabs on the left side of the interface. The first tab is already pressed, and provides all the options for laying out fields. The second tab is frequently missed. It allows users to layout the background of the database.

Field Layout Use this to move, resize, and change options for fields.

Background Layout Use this to add color, pictures, and labels to the background.
