Journal Text Sledgehammer

The Journal Text Sledgehammer is a tool for bulk formatting of TextEditBoxes within journals.



To use:


  1. Open the Journal(s) you want to edit. If no journals are open, the program will inform you of this and open a new journal. 
  2. Invoke the Sledgehammer.
  3. Use the tabs provided to edit text boxes, outline boxes, or run various utilities.
  4. Make sure the journal you wish to edit is selected at the top of the Sledgehammer. As journals are added and deleted throughout the session, press the "refresh" button to update the list.
  5. Make selections with the Sledgehammer's controls to edit the journal's text properties.
  • If nothing in the journal is selected, changes will be made to ALL of the Text Boxes (or, if on the Outline Box tab, Outline Boxes) in the journal. Otherwise, changes will be made only to the selected part(s).
  • To select multiple pieces of text, right-click on each piece of text in the journal, choosing Edit...Select repeatedly until the desired blocks of text have been highlighted.
  • When you press the buttons in the Sledgehammer window, these items will be formatted accordingly.
  • Before you can use the "Apply All of the Above" button, you must make selections in all of the Sledgehammer's drop-down menus.
  • When an Outline Box has been selected in the journal, this will cause in all of its TextEditBox descendants to be modified as the Sledgehammer is used.



The sledge rules

Is anyone having issues with Slides into Journal?

Hi @wendytseng,


You have to save each slide as an image (export from PPT).


Just to add to this. I use Export as PNG and then use All slides. I have to export into a folder at the root of C:\. From there, a new folder is created and I point add-in to that folder for PNG files.

I used it recently and had no problems. I saved my slides as .jpg images and placed the needed images (I didn't need all of slides inserted to my journal)  in a folder as required by the add-in's Slides to Journal utility.  

@chris_kirchberg  Yeah - I cannot export to a OneDrive directory.
