This kind of unalterable background would be ideal for a flyer, for example. For a flyer, you may want to change the address on the document to that of another branch of your business. You can do this by writing the address in an editable textbox in the background and giving sign-off (object features) to users who should be able to edit the text.
Our tip: Upload the finished design including textboxes, then, using the editor, place textboxes over the original textboxes and give others the sign-off to edit the document. Then swap the background into a document without text boxes. Your editable layout is ready.
If you want to make the images in a folder available to other users , place the tick mark in the check box on the folder. Please also remember to place the tick mark in theSigned-off Images folder to make this available to all other users.
Our tip: the folder structure can be used to make specific images available to others.
When placing an image, please make sure that it is at least placed up to the dotted line beyond the actual printed document. This is the bleed area and it makes sure that your print won't have any white lines from cutting.
Our tip: to assure exact image placement, enter the x and y coordinates of your image in the advanced mode.
You canmanage the available fonts by activating certain fonts and setting one as the standard. Only these select fonts will be available for use when a document is being created. Place the star next to the font you would like to activate so only these can be used in a new text box. You can also upload your own fonts to SAXOPRINT.cloud; either a TrueTypeFont.ttf or OpenTypeFont.otf. Please make sure you have legal permission to use these fonts on the internet. Feel free to contact us if you think we're missing a font.
Our tip: for most licensed fonts you can find a very similar Google Font. Just compare Arial with Arimo to see what we mean.
You can find a small list of common fonts and their Google Font equivalent here:
|Ruge Boogie||Curlz MT Queen King|
|Source Sans Pro||Franklin Gothic Book|
|Open Sans, Lato||Helvetica|
Please note: If you want to make images available to co-workers, remember you will have to place the tick in the checkbox in the folder on the image tile.
Placeholders can be used for both text and images. As a graphic designer, you will be be able place a 'Logo placeholder', for example. If a co-worker does not replace the placeholder with his or her own logo, the area will stay blank when printed.
Our tip: to assure exact placement, enter the x and y coordinates of your image in the advanced mode.
You also work with different guides in advanced mode. You can either use the existing guides such as the guidance lines (which you can find under the help section) or add new guides und place the layers on top of each other.
In the advanced mode, you can activate platform fonts, so that only the selected fonts can be used for all layout design in your platform. Specific document fonts, in comparison, are only relevant to the one specific layout you are currently working on. This makes a limited amount of fonts available for co-workers editing a print document.
The authorisation managment area in the advanced mode is a fusion of the authorisation management and object property sections in the regular editor. What makes this special are the specific boxes. The field name is for documentation purposes only. The field ID allows you to automatically fill multiple fields. If a text field occurs, for example, several times, the user only has to change it at one point. All other fields will be updated accordingly.
If you are satisfied with all your changes, click next. You will find the finished print document in the My Print Documents section, where you can order your documents instantly.
If you can't see any tiles on the left of the page but you would like to add components (e.g. your own images) please get in touch with the platform contact.
When creating newtext boxes in the Editor, you may want to add titles and subheadings in different font sizes. You can do this by adding a 'running text' text box in the advanced mode; writing a text with different font sizes is only possible in the advanced mode. You can define the font type, size, colour and structure using the context menu.
Our tip: copy your finished text box, so you don't have to configure the font again.
If you can't see any tiles on the left of the page, but you would like to add a component (e.g. your own images), please get in touch with the platform contact.
Simply add images as JPG, PNG or PDF files with the Drag & Drop function in the Editor. When placing an image on the document, use the smileys as a guide to see if the picture has the correct resolution and therefore will print well. You can use the context menu to move the image between the different layers.
PDF files will be converted to pictures in the co-worker mode. This means that, in comparison to the Pro-mode, PDF files will not automatically be set as backgrounds, rather they will be set as pictures which you can change the size of.
Please make sure that the picture is at least placed up to the dotted line beyond the actual print document in order to avoid any white lines from cutting.
Our tip: placeholder images can be easily exchanged using the Drag & Drop function.
