Is there a way to see a preview of our submission?

Wondering if we can see what our gallery and submission will look like before we submit. Thanks

    Yes, you should be able to see your submission's page once you submit it for review. That, aside from the edit button, is what users and judges will see will see when viewing your app. You can continue to make changes to that page up until the 8 pm deadline on May 15th. Unfortunately, you aren't able to preview the gallery. For an idea of what it will look like, see http://appsforcommunities.challenge.gov/submissions

    Matthew, I think what Craig meant is when you save a draft you should be able to see how the formatting of the text in the description is going to hold up. In my past experience with some web forms, all end of lines, spaces, paragraphs disappear creating a complete mess.

    What we do not want to do is submit it for the review before we made sure the text is at least readable.

    While on this subject, is there a way to add headings, or at least make some text bold, and add spacing with empty lines spacing and paragraphs?

    Thanks

    Thank you, also worried that my screen shots looks strange on the form

    Gene,
    That's a good point. Seeing the text as it appears in the submission gallery requires actually submitting the app. You can then edit the submission until 8 pm EDT tonight.
    As to your question, many text formatting HTML tags work in the description field. br>, strong>, etc. can be used for text formatting.
    Thanks!

    I just tried some of the html tags. I will list my results here:

    Works:
    br, i, ol, li

    Does not work:
    h2, b
    So no way to make headings, any suggestion?

    Edit: just tried strong tag, it works. So, it will do for headings.
