Edit an existing item

  1. Tap the Edit Proloquo4Text 32Px Icon B Edit icon.
  2. Tap the item you want to edit. Alternatively, you can tap Select at the bottom left to select multiple items at once to give them the same background color, toggle them to Hidden, or give them the same voice properties. 


Any individual item can have an abbreviation added to it. An abbreviation must be at least two characters. When entered into the Text Pad, an abbreviation will produce the full text of a given item. It is best to choose word or letter combinations you will not use anywhere else.
