After creating fields like name,telephone etc, I also created a merge block with name in bold followed by telephone number. In print preview I am getting the 2 field values AND the merge block value. This looks like repetition. I am wondering where I should place the merge block.
I you don't need a mergeblock, don't use it!
You can use it if you want in a format to combine text + field content of one or more fields. Useful for printing situations.
It is not obvious to place a field in a format, and add same field in same format in a merge block. Except of course if you need this.
Thanks Bert. Just started using Cardbox yesterday. Merge Blocks kind of intrigued me. I didn't see it in any of the samples. Have been googling quite a bit on Cardbox. Doesn't seem to be popular. But for me it sounds exciting. Shall keep exploring it.
Explore it further on! You will be surprised and wonder why it's (still) so unknown.
I use it since 1988 and never seen software which could be really an alternative.
Suggestion: push on F1 wherever you are in the software. The Help is is very complete and will lead you on.
And indeed: searching in the forum would be a very fine addition!
