Applying Templates

Templates allow you to create multiple copies of your document using a pre-defined layout. Additionally, you can create documents (such as invoices) based on Job Information.

Creating multiple copies of a document

The copies are created using the following pattern:

(2) 4.0 x 5.0 inches

(2) 2.5 x 3.5 inches

(4) 2.0 x 2.5 inches

Invoice created using the template feature

If necessary, the original document will automatically be rotated to fit into the space provided by the picture placeholders in the template.

  1. Open an existing document or create a new one.
  2. From the File menu, point to Templates and click Apply Template.


  3. Choose the template from the list. The templates are named following the convention:

    1. Number of copies

    2. Size (inches)

  4. Adjust the following parameters:

    Selection only

    If checked, only objects selected in the original design will be copied over into the template.

    Include border

    If checked, the entire page of the design out to and including the borders will be copied over into the template. If not checked, only the design objects will be copied over.

    Include substrate color

    If checked, the colored substrate in any original design will be copied over into the template. This option is only enabled when Include border is checked.

  5. Choose Select.

    When a template is applied to a document, any dimensions or registration marks contained in the document are converted into outlines.
