When you open the QAPP template it will either open as a read-only document or you may be prompted by the following message to save the document under a new name:
If you see this prompt, click “No”. When the document opens, use the File + Save As command to save it under a new name. If the document opens as a read-only document, you must save the document under a new name to preserve any changes you make to it. The new document you save will be the one you use to draft your QAPP.
All form fields (the sections in gray) are editable. The only exception to this is the Table of Contents, which does not function the same way as a form field.
Click in any form field to enter or edit text.
Help text is provided in each form field and is designed to assist you in providing the correct information for each section. The help text will automatically be overwritten when you tab into a form field and begin entering text. However, if you simply click in the form field, the help text remains and must be deleted manually.
Unlike the other form fields in the template, the Table of Contents is not editable. However, the numbering can be updated by pressing the F9 key on your keyboard. Although this feature is automated, it will not work unless you press the F9 key. The Table of Contents should be always be updated prior to submitting any draft of the QAPP to IDEM.
Both of these lists are editable and function the same way as other form fields. This allows you to delete or add as many appendices and tables as needed. Likewise, the title pages for the Appendices that appear at the end of the template are editable, allowing you to delete them or create additional title pages using the Copy + Paste commands.
Note: If you delete both the List of Appendices and the List of Tables entirely, page two of your QAPP will remain blank. This is necessary to maintain the correct pagination within the document.
