Creating a Template

In order to create a template, you will need to enter the Template Editor from the sidebar. This will bring you to a page with a list of all existing templates.

The sidebar will now contain options to Create, Delete, Rename and Copy templates. When you select Create Template, you will be prompted to name the template, and afterwards will be brought to the Page Setup for the new template.

To edit an existing template, select it from the list and then click Page Setup.

The Page Editor is split into two sections: the left side, which contains all of the layout options, and the right side, which shows a preview of your template.

We will go over the Page Layout editor in more detail in the next tutorial, but here is a quick explanation of some of the most important settings in the Page Setup. These are all found under the Layout tab.

The first is the Display Option. This lets you select the style of template you are creating. Currently, there are two choices – Grid, which puts a static number of display units on each page, and Dynamic, which automatically adjusts the size of each display unit to fit the most products on each page.

For a Grid template, the next option will allow you to set how many rows and columns of display units appear on each page. For a Dynamic template, you can only set the number of columns, as there may be a different number of display units in each column.

Finally, the Order Option defines how items in your datasheet are translated to the template. Down then Across will fill each column before moving to the next, while Across then Down will fill each row before moving downwards.
