IMPORTANT – This user tip relates to an older version of Genovo. Although much of the content and many of the concepts still apply to the current version of Genovo, the screenshots and some instructions may no longer be accurate.

This month I’m going to share a simple user tip that will really help add some extra visual interest to your reports.

As you know, within Genovo you can quickly and easily change the look and feel of your reports by applying a different report theme. A theme is a set of formatting choices that will be applied to your reports including colours, fonts and styling. 

One of the many styles you’ll find within a Report Theme is Bullet Points as highlighted below.

The benefit of bullet points

At Genovo, we use bullet points a lot in our reports because they:

  • Help to highlight key information.
  • Help to break up the paragraph text.
  • Are easier to ‘digest’, and make the report easier to read.

To make your reports even more eye-catching and engaging, you can now, following a recent updatechange the colour and style of the bullet points used in the reports you create in Genovo. So, let’s have a look at how you can easily do this.  

How to customise the bullet points used in your reports
