About Cell Groups

Cell groups are pre-defined formats that can be applied to any cell. If the document can be divided into groups of cells that require common formatting attributes, it is possible to store these formats in a cell group. The cell group can be assigned to blocks of cells that automatically acquire the attributes of the cell group. Think of cell groups as sophisticated "cell styles".

The power of cell groups is easily extended to any CaseView document so that cell groups only need to be created once.

Cell groups also control access to cell formatting in the Form Mode.

Use cell groups to accomplish the following tasks:

  • Apply global formatting to columns of cells
  • Modify column positioning
  • Create display only columns of cells
