SharePoint Online 2013 - Lists

My Client wants to use the SharePoint Online they get as part of their E3 Office 365 Plan they have.

I setup a test Intranet type page a few months ago for them and setup a Form whereby users can request something to be created. I used InfoPath and the form is really neat.

However, in the list page, I created some text that told them to click on a button at the bottom of the page to create a new request. With the upgrade to 2013 recently that button disappeared. No problem as I can just edit the text with a screen shot of what to click on.

Except I cant find how to edit the text!!. It looks like this:
ListTextI was able to edit the "To add a new......." before and make it as big as it is. But in the new version I cannot seem to locate how to do this!!

I have full admin access to the SharePoint system. I have SharePoint Designer 2013 installed. Some pointers would be great!!

Any ideas??

Use the Ribbon? Press on "Items" on top, select New Item. If you want to modify the view, press on View instead and select Create View or Modify View, ti will give you an option to modify it in designer as well.

You can also reset any customizations made by clicking the gear icon on top, Site Settings, Site Actions, Reset to Site definition. This will remove all customizations from specific page or site (which might be a good idea in your case, you have a modified view, not the default 2013 list one).

Another pair of eyes always helps!!

Using the "Modify View' --> 'Edit in SharePoint Designer' option from the site, I was then able to locate that text string in the HTML code and edit it that way. Now the text points the users at the ribbon for the 'ITEMS' --< 'New Items' option - which is what they need!!

Im sure that when it was on 2010 and using Desginer 2010 there was an option to edit the page in terms of WYSIWYGF?

But thnaks for the tip!!
