Writing and editing text topics Follow

The Plan tab in LivePlan contains all the text sections of your business plan. These are arranged into a default plan outline, which you can easily customize to suit your needs

When you write or edit any text topic, you'll see a toolbar with common formatting options, including bold, italic, bulleted lists, numbered lists, and block quotes:
