Manipulating Template Elements

Adding Elements to a Template

  • Select an element to use from the Available Elements on the left
  • Click the element and then drag it to the desired position on the template
  • Drop the element

Moving Elements on a Template

  • Click the element you wish to move
    • A yellow bounding box will appear around the selected element
  • The element can be moved either by:
    • Drag and drop
    • Use of the Left and Top text boxes to set an exact position

Removing Elements from a Template

  • Click the element you wish to move
    • A yellow bounding box will appear around the selected element
  • The element can be deleted either by:
    • Pressing Delete on the keyboard
    • Right clicking and from the pop out menu, selecting Delete item

Editing Elements from a Template

Each element on a template will have customisation available by double clicking it. For information on the customisation of elements, please see this guide.

 Right Click menu

Right clicking any element on a template will create a pop out menu with the following options:

  • Copy: This will paste a new copy of the element on the page
  • Bring to Front: Elements can be placed ontop of one another. This will bring the element to the top, if other elements are overlapping this one
  • Send to Back: Elements can be placed ontop of one another. This will send the element to the back, if this element overlaps another
  • Delete Item: This will remove the element from the page

Please Note! Choosing an action from the menu will apply the action to the element that was right clicked and not the element with the yellow bounding box.
