User Settings - Customizing print layouts

Top  Previous  Next

The layouts used for printing letters, invoices etc can be customized by inserting custom graphics and text elements.

 

These changes affect:

invoices
offers
order confirmations
purchase orders
general correspondence

 

General

Layout configuration takes place in >User Settings >Layout.

  The screen presents a schematic view of a basic A4 print layout with the following elements:

ologo (only graphic file)
o(small) sender's address line (text only)
oinfo field header, right (text OR graphic)
ofooter (text OR graphic)

 

Inserting elements by mouse click

Click  Insert graphic file   to open a file selection box and choose a graphic file from your hard disc
Click  Insert text   to open a little text box and start typing.
To apply text formatting: >Select text >right-click >choose function

 

Note

You cannot have both types, text AND graphics, in one layout element.

 

Note

You cannot move graphic elements on the layout, but you can influence the position of your logo indirectly. E.g. to enforce a right-hand alignment for your logo, create a graphic object covering the full page width (corresponding to the space available in T.O.M.), filling the left-hand blank space with a transparent or a white element.
