STARTING UP

When the builder starts, you will have to set a couple of things: width, height, quality DPI, sides and bleed. The image below shows the first step on the initialization process.

BUILDER STEP 1

 

WORKING WITH FONTS

You can change the font family, size, color, style, weight and decoration as you see fit by clicking the font name you wish to use if the font-family window preview. Double click to edit the text or click and drag the text around to change it’s position. Notice the “Position tracker” on the left bottom corner. It allows you to keep track of your texts within each page.

Although you were required to set a bleed value, you can do further changes through the top control bar. It also tells you the size of your document, DPI quality and sides. Use the pagination arrows to scroll through pages.

Once you double click the text, an editor will be displayed. The editor contains 2 input fields which allows you to define the text to be displayed and the label identifier used on the front-end software (ecommdss).
