Updated: 2020-07-21

  1. Start typing in a blue calculated field to override the value.
  2. If you prefer to press the F2 key before overriding a field, you can disable automatic override in options (Edit page, under Return Preparation):
    Disable automatic overrides
  3. Press Ctrl+F2 to override the format, such as a phone number or postal code field.
  4. Press F2 to remove an override.
  5. Fields with an override appear in red text, with a red asterisk in the top left of the field. The form icon shows a red asterisks too:
