On the left you see the clue as it is currently displayed. Enter your correction on the right by editing the text directly. The top left field is the clue's value, either as given on the board, or, if a Daily Double, the value of the contestant's wager. If the clue is a Daily Double, check the checkbox to the right of this field. The top right field is the clue order number representing the order of the clue's selection amongst other clues in the round. The large blue field is for the clue text, which should be entered as closely as possible to how it appears on the show, with the exception that the words should not be all caps. Links to media clue files should be entered with HTML-style hyperlinks. Next come the nicknames of the three contestants in the form of response toggles: single clicks on the name change its color from white (no response) to green (correct response) to red (incorrect response) and back. Below this should be typed the correct response (only the most essential part--it should not be entered in the form of a question). The bottom field on the right is the clue comments field, where dialog (including incorrect responses) can be entered. (Note that the correct response should never be typed in the comments field; rather, it should be denoted by [*].)
