The Print Layout section of the Event Admin tab is where you will set up the page layout Page Settings for your printed tiles. You can also control the Label Text Position and settings as they will appear on the printed tiles. You will also see a preview of a printed tile on the right that will update in accordance with any changes made, here or throughout the application.
In the Page Settings section, you will configure your print settings for the session.
- Based on the physical materials you have for printing the tiles of your mosaic, enter the sticker or tile size in inches in the Sticker Size selector. The other dimension will adjust automatically.
- The Number of stickers per page allows you to set up the number of tiles that will be on each page. Again, this should match your printer settings and the physical media that you are using for the mosaic.
- Auto-rotate images to correct orientation when checked will adjust the images accordingly.
- Saved image name allows you to decide how the processed saved mosaic sticker images should be named.
The Label Text Position section allows you to control more than just that.
Label Text provides the final 'coordinates' of each tile's position in the mosaic. This is printed on the tile so you always know where it goes on the final grid. Here, you can change the font characteristics and the positioning of the text on the tile.
- Font size can be adjusted for the Label Text.
- From edge (%) allows you to adjust the position of the Label Text in the printed tiles.
- The Position selector allows you to move the Label Text to one of five different locations in the tiles that will be printed.
- You can also update your Placement Label Format:
- Row-Column format is formatted to show the number of the row and the number of the column, giving specific coordinates on your final mosaic, e.g. 'R2C13' would be the tile in the second row down, and the thirteenth column across.
- Excel format is similar to 'Row Column' in that it gives exact coordinates, but in a more traditional excel format, e.g. ''B13'' would also refer to the tile in the second row and the thirteenth column.
- Plain sequence will assign only a number, in the order of the tiles as they read from left to right, top to bottom. This is the less popular option since it does not pinpoint the final coordinate of the tile if the tiles are being printed out of sequence - only the order in which they will ultimately be placed. E.g. '266' would be the 266th tile in the sequence.
