There are three ways to apply layouts to your pages. In all cases, you can add images to your canvas before or after the layout it applied. Simply drag the image to your canvas or directly into an image frame.
METHOD 1: Using the Layouts Pane
|Pre-made layouts can be quickly applied from the Layouts pane.|
Click on EDITOR.
Click on Page.
Click on Layouts (on the left side of the screen).
|When the Layouts pane is open, select between:|
Left | Spread | Right
Click on Left to displays layouts to apply to the left-hand side of canvas spread
Click on Spread to display all layouts to apply to both sides of the canvas.
Click on Right to displays layouts to apply to the right-hand side of the canvas spread
|Next, select the number of images you would like in that layout:|
1 2 3 4 5 6 7+
Clicking on the numbers will filter the layouts to only show layouts with your selected number of images.
Click on Left, to see left-side layouts.
Click on 4, to show left-side layouts with four images.
Click on a layout to apply it to the left side of your page
Click on Spread, to show all full-spread layouts.
Click on 3
to show all layouts full-spread layouts with three images
Click on a layout to apply it to the full-spread.
|You can apply a layout to a page already containing images.|
If you choose a layout with more frames that images currently on the page, your new layout will contain one or more empty frames.
If you choose a layout with less frames than the number of images on your page, you will receive a suggestion to change pick a layout with an equal or greater number of images.
METHOD 2: Using Layout Shuffle
|Shuffle through layout alternatives by using the icons directly over the canvas.|
|Shuffle the entire spread, without respecting the gutter line.|
|Shuffle the entire spread, respecting the gutter line.|
|Shuffle only the right or the left side at a time.|
Note: if your starting layout has images straddling the gutter line, first shuffle the images into separate sides using the "respect centre line" shuffle option. The left & right shuffle icons will become available at this point.
METHOD 3: Using Layout Preview
|Click on the Layout Preview icon over the canvas to access the previews.|
Note: this method works best if images are already on your page.
|The Layout Preview window will appear.|
Previews display layout and image arrangement alternatives. It will only display layouts with the same number of frames as there are images on your page.
Notice that it can be moved away from the main application, including to a second screen.
|Click on any of the layouts to apply them to your page.|
