Enclosure Cards Your Way
Every so often I will get a call about the formatting of words in the enclosure card.
Most of the time, those asking the question, either do not know that flowerSoft formats the card message as indicated in the “defaults” settings or know how to get to those settings in order to change them.
flowerSoft will format your enclosure card in one of three different ways:
- flowerSoft will capitalize the first letter of every word. So, if for example, you type “I love you” flowerSoft will format that line as “I Love You”
This is OK in most cases, but sometimes it produces undesirable effects. Let’s say you type “NYC Dept. of Public Works”. flowerSoft will convert that sentence to “Nyc Dept. Of Public Works”.
There isn’t much you can do to prevent that exempt perhaps separate each letter with a space as in “N Y C Dept. of Public Works” to get “N Y C Dept. Of Public Works”.
- The second option you have is to be in total control. flowerSoft will not try to format anything you type. If you want a letter or word in CAPS, you have to type it that way.
- The last option is to have flowerSoft capitalize all the letters in the card. So if you type “I love you”, flowerSoft will make it “I LOVE YOU”.
You can select which option you want to use by following this path from the main menu: M > S > D > 1 > 1 (in most cases) > U and then navigating to page #19 by hitting the <Page Down> key.
and then entering the number of the style you want flowerSoft to use in the red box.

However, if you like style 1, where flowerSoft capitalizes the first letter of each word, but run into the “Nyc Dept. Of Public Works” formatting problem occasionally, you can change the formatting for that order only by pressing F9 and selecting style #2. That style will remain in effect for that order only. On the next order, the style will go back to the default style.
