You may have noticed some recent improvements to the JRNL platform. (And if you haven’t…did you skip writing in your journal for a few weeks?😉 ) We’ve been receiving a few of the same questions, so we thought it was time to clarify some things in a blog post. After all, things like saving your entries, importing photos from your computer and/or Instagram, and changing the format of your writing are all core functions of the JRNL platform. Without further delay, here are the three most frequently asked questions from this past month.
- My entry isn’t saving, even after I click SAVE ENTRY. What’s going on?
There’s a good chance you accidentally wrote your entry in the “Entry Title” field instead of the body text area. The easiest way to make sure this doesn’t happen is to press the tab key on your keyboard after you enter your title. It’ll jump you to the body area for a seamless writing experience. Or, you can click on the area that says “How was your day?” Remember that an entry title is optional so you can choose to skip the title and get started writing about your day.
- How do I add a photo or import from Instagram?
Make sure you are in the body text area (i.e. Click on the question, How was your day?). You’ll see a little camera icon that looks like this . Click on that icon to import photos from your computer. If you want to import from Instagram, click on the icon that looks like a bunch of squares with an arrow facing down. A new window will appear and your Instagram images should display. Select the photos you wish to import by checking the boxes to the left of the image, click PREVIEW SELECTED, and then INSERT SELECTED.
- How do I format my text?
Make sure you are in the body text area. Highlight the area or words that you want to format, and a toolbar will appear with options. From left to right (as pictured) the tools are: Bold, Italic, Hyperlink, Bulleted List, Numbered List, Large Text, and Quote.
