  1. Open the card for an item that you want to add extended text to, and then choose the Extended Text action.
  2. Fill in the Code and Description fields.
  3. Choose the New.
  4. Fill in the Language Code field or select the All Language Codes check box if you use language codes.

  6. In the Text field, write the extended text.
  7. Select relevant check boxes for the document types where you want the extended text printed.
