2 thoughts on “Prefill”

  1. Since this is the support center this article and all articles that assume the primary user is reading this should refer to the reader in the second person and not third.

    This is “Prefill” and so it assumes the preparer of the document would be the one reading this.

  2. In my opinion numbered lists upon lists should be eliminated. the Main numbers can remain and in some instances the sub lists should be changed to letters a,b,c but in some instances here the listed numbers should be eliminated entirely.
