Page Editor 101

Modified on Sun, 14 Jan 2024 at 11:45 AM

The Page Editor is a crucial component where creativity meets functionality. The editor allows you to transform your ideas into artistic yearbook pages.

It offers a range of tools and features like templates, photo insertion, text editing, shapes, clip-arts, background options, and more.

Object Definition and Terminology: Throughout the Editor Categories, you'll frequently encounter the term 'objects.' In our context, 'objects' can represent an Image, Text, or Shape. We employ the term 'objects' to discuss features and options that are applicable to each of these types.

Editor Page Bleed and Safe Area

M - Bleed Area : This is the red border surrounding the pages. It's the area that will be trimmed in the final print to achieve edge-to-edge printing. Extending any background images or elements that spill over the page edges (like shapes or banners) through this red bleed area right up to the page's edge is essential. This ensures no unprinted white border on the final printed page.
N - Safe Area : These are the green lines inside the page edge. All critical images and text should be placed within these safe margins. This precaution ensures they are not cut off on the final printed page.

Active / Inactive Page

O - Active Page : Display the currently active page available for editing. In the Thumbnail view, the active page is indicated by being fully visible in white

P  - Inactive Page : The inactive pages are depicted as dimmed visuals, accompanied by informative text
