Clinical Notes Font Size, Styles, Colors

It would be very helpful if the clinical notes could allow certain text to be bold, italics, and/or a larger font and allow attachments. We are constantly duplicating information from clinical notes into Patient Alerts so that it is more apparent in the future. We also use lots of CAPITALS and ****** to bring attention to information in clinical notes. A simple rich text editor in there would be a really helpful addition.

    Clinical notes font size can be changed. No colors or Bold but It's there near the Clinical note template setup.

    We do the exact same. Also, update the size of the icons. Team member struggle to see the procedure buttons. When you adjust the panel size it should also make the icons larger.

    in my templates, it would be great to be able to BOLD certain spots where the answers wouldn't be bolded... as well as being able to BOLD in the chart notes whenever not using a template

    Love this idea!

    Our Hygienists have commented several times it would be so nice to easily distinguish between their notes and Dr. Caldwell's notes by changing color, style etc...

    I would be nice to be able to highlight an important line in the clinical notes so that it stands out above the other notes.

    You've had the same archaic prehistoric word processor for over a decade. it's embarrassing that nothing can be underlined, bulleted, put in italics, boldfaced, maybe insert a photos or x-ray next to text you are referring to, etc.

    Is there a way that we can have the questionnaire in spanish? We have a huge Latino patient base and it is difficult for them to complete the questionnaire in English and its time consuming for the practice.

    Dentrix managers ,Instead of appreciating the feedback do something to resolve the issue, doctors , staff members , managers spend lots of time in front of the computer and certainly having to read your tinny letters doesn't help at all. This is an ongoing problem  and still not resolve .

    we'd like to be able to change 'type' color to red so that in the clinical notes when can type in red when the patient is a NO SHOW or arrives late or cancels short notice.

    Clinical notes needs to be completly easy to customize. This includes the text size and color. PLUS; the date that shows to the lefthand side of the notes needs to be easy to customize, (diferent colors used for hygiene vs doctors), this would make it easy to see which notes to open up if you are looking for something specific.

    Would like the option of having color choices for each entry - such as red to indicate "no show" or late arrivals; purple to indicate miscellaneous personal information. etc.

    color choices are a GREAT idea. When we used paper progress notes, Hygiene notes were in GREEN, Operative Notes were in BLUE, Administrative notes were in RED. The best idea is to have this fully customizable and perhaps have the ability to tie to specific logons, such as HYG1 or FO01 (Front Office 01) for example.
