Creating Print Items: Drag and Drop Editor


The Drag and Drop editor allows you to create print items using layers and elements. Templates made for this editor offer complete flexibility in moving and editing text, images, and shapes. However, if you’re looking for the ability to create lists (for example, lists of books or lists of events) or import book titles from a NoveList folder, please use the templates made specifically for the Lists Editor.

To create an item in the Drag and Drop editor, under a promotion at the Promotion tab click the Create Item link. 

Enter your keyword like "storytime" or "summer reading" into the search bar, then dlick the format you wish to use under the Refine sidebar. Or click the format you wish to browse under the Refine sidebar without entering a search term. 

Most of the templates are Drag and Drop templates. 

Note: Templates can also be selected from the Home tab (at the top of LibraryAware). Click Create under a template you would like to use.

In your template, all elements can be managed separately. You can delete, move, or change the opacity of the elements in your item.

Watch our video tutorial for more information on the Drag and Drop editor.

Note: Items and templates previously created in the Lists Editor cannot be opened in the newer Drag and Drop editor. If you would like to edit an item or template that you previously created in the Lists Editor, you will need to create a new item in the Drag and Drop editor.

When you are done working in the editor, save or print your item using the buttons in the toolbar. For more information on publishing your Item, see the Printing & Publishing Items section of Help.
