It takes too much time to execute (preview) and upload the document in Excel.

To execute (preview) the content of a sheet, OZ in Excel pre-inspects the used range during the conversion process. If a cell or row is arbitrarily adjusted, then it may take a long time to convert the entire adjusted area to be recognized as the used area. In this case, you can reduce the conversion time by following the below instructions.

  1. Selects the entire first empty row after the created document area.
  2. Drag the vertical bar on the right with the mouse and drag it until the bottom of the screen. Then, press the Shift key and then select the last row.
  3. Right-click on the row and select Delete in the pop-up menu displayed to delete the entire  row.
  4. Delete columns in the same way.
  5. Save the document and execute again.
I can’t see the OZ in Office ribbon menu when I open an MS Office program.

Follow the steps below to enable to disabled OZ in Office ribbon menu.

  1. Go to File > Options
  2. Click Add-ins and select Disabled items in the drop-down menu next to the Manage item. Then, click the Go… button.
  3. Click OZ in Office in the list of Disabled Items and then click the Enable button.
  4. Close all MS Office files and open an MS Office program to see if the menu is now shown.

 

If the above does not work, then manually change the registry as follows.

  1. Close all Excel, PowerPoint, and Word programs and open Task Manager by pressing Ctrl+Alt+Delete. Then, check whether any of the Excel.exe, POWERPNT.exe, and WINWORD.exe processes are running.
  2. Press the Windows key + r to open Run, and then enter regedit to open the registry editor.
  3. Enter the below path in the Registry Editor window and then delete folders such as FORCS.OZinExcel (this step is for deleting OZ in Office registered in MS office).
    Excel: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\Excel\Addins\FORCS.OZinExcel
    Word: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\Excel\Addins\FORCS.OZinWord
    PowerPoint: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\Excel\Addins\FORCS.OZinPPT
  4. Enter the below path in the Registry Editor window and then double-click the Loadbehavior file of each folder and change the value to ‘3’ (always running OZ in Office registered in MS Office).
    Excel: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Office\Excel\Addins\FORCS.OZinExcel
    Word: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Office\Excel\Addins\FORCS.OZinWord
    PowerPoint: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Office\Excel\Addins\FORCS.OZinPPT
  5. Open Excel, PowerPoint, or Word and check to see whether OZ in Office is shown. If not shown, then close all Registry Editors and enter %systemroot%\syswow64\regedit instead of regedit in Step 2. Then, retry steps 3 and 4 (change 64bit registry).
I uploaded an Excel file with formula, but the formula is not applied.

Each component is a unique key value that is recognized in eformsign. Therefore, if there are duplicate IDs, a calculation error will occur when referring to the value.

Hence, cells containing different values must have different IDs.

Moreover, a cell from which the final value of a formula is derived does not require an input component.

if a text component is added, it is recognized as a space entered by the user and no calculation value is entered. Therefore, you need to delete all the components in the cell and specify only the ID.

Can you create a template from a Microsoft Office file?

Yes. There are two ways you can create a template from a Microsoft Office file.

Click Manage templates in the eformsign sidebar menu and upload the Microsoft Office file you want to create a template out of.

Another way is to install Form Builder provided by eformsign and add components to a Microsoft Office file and upload it to eformsign.

Form Builder can be installed in Microsoft Office 2010 or later in Windows PC, and you can download it by clicking Download eformsign form builder.

Can Form Builder be installed only on a Windows PC?

eformsign Form Builder is only available on Windows PC. You need Windows 7 or higher operating system and MS Office 2010 or higher to use Form Builder without problems.

Do I need coding skills to use eformsign?

It takes too much time to execute the form builder in Excel.

OZ in Excel pre-checks “Used Range” during conversion to execute the contents of a spreadsheet. If you arbitrarily resize rows or columns, it may take quite some time to recognize the entire resized area as a used area for conversion. In such a case, you can decrease the conversion time using the following method.

  1. Select all the empty cells of the first row in the created document.
  2. Drag the vertical scroll bar on the right with a mouse until it is at the bottom and then select the last row while pressing on the shift key (select range).
  3. Right-click on the row and select the delete menu to delete the entire selected rows.
  4. Delete the columns using the same method.
  5. Save the document and execute it again.
The page count of an Excel document is different in the form builder.

When the form builder is used in Excel, the preview screen that appears when clicking “Execute” in the form builder is generated based on the print area set in the “Print Area” menu under “PAGE LAYOUT”.

If the page count is different than what you expected when executing the builder, then please change the print area.

I can’t see the shapes added to my document in eformsign.

You can see the shapes you added to your Word or PowerPoint document in eformsign. However, this is not the case in Excel as it does not support shape conversion.

If you need to use shapes, please use Word or PowerPoint.

What’s the difference between the check component and the radio component?

The “check” component is used for selecting one or more items among multiple items to choose from while the “radio” component is used for only one item among multiple items to choose from.

When using the “radio” component, you must have the same component ID for all items to be able to select just one item.

When I execute a document on the form builder, the document appears differently than shown on the Microsoft Office program.

A document created on a Microsoft Office program may appear differently when executed on the form builder. This is because of the differences in the composition and method in which documents and electronic documents are displayed on the screen.

For example, there may be instances where after executing the builder, the font looks the same but the text width looks different, resulting in different line breaks.

Therefore, it is recommended to frequently check the execution screen when creating a document using the form builder.

 

If you upload a document on eformsign in the Manage templates page, the uploaded document may look differently due to reasons such as font issue.

Therefore, we recommend you to upload PDF files for the best experience.
