How do I work with bookmarks?

These instructions apply to templates that use the Drag and Drop editor only. For instructions on editing items created in the Lists editor, see the Creating Print Items: Lists Editor section.   
 
In LibraryAware we have bookmark templates to promote both events and books at your library. 

To create a bookmark in the Drag and Drop editor:

  1. Click Create Item under your Promotion.
  2. Under item type, select Print: Drag and Drop.
  3. For item format, select one of the three bookmark formats, depending on how many bookmarks you want to print per page.
  4. To select a template, click on the template then click the Select This Template button.  
  5. To change the text, click in a text box and edit the text. If your bookmark promotes an event, just edit the text to change the event information. For more information on editing text see the How do I add and edit text? page.
  6. Change any book jackets in your item (for bookmarks that contain books):
    • Click on a book jacket in the template.
    • Click the Swap button in the toolbar.
    • From the image selector window, click the Book Jackets tab (or AV Cover Art tab).
    • Search for a book or AV item. Use the drop-down menu to select a field to search, then enter your search terms.
    • Click Select Jacket or Select Cover Art to insert that image in your template.
    • When you replace a book jacket, the new jacket will be pulled in sized to that of the original jacket image.
    • Use the square handles to crop the image box, or use the circular handles to enlarge or shrink the image. Or click the Fill button in the toolbar to fill the image box.
    • Click Accept in the toolbar.
  7. Add additional book jackets to your item. In the Drag and Drop editor, adding books will not pull in book annotations. You can add that information on your own by adding a text box.
    • From the left panel in the Drag and Drop editor, click Images.
    • Double-click on Book Jackets to add one to your item. 
    • From the image selector window, search for a book by title.
    • Click Select Jacket to insert the image in your template.
    • Drag the book jacket to position it in your bookmark.
  8. Add a text box for additional book information or another event:
    • Click the Text option on the left panel.
    • Double-click on the Normal text box to add it to your bookmark.
    • Drag the text box to position it in your bookmark.
    • To change the text, click in a text box and edit the text.
    • To change text formatting, highlight the text and use the top toolbar to change the font, font size, or orientation.
  9. Add or swap out any background images in your item. See the How do I add and edit images? page.
  10. Add any shapes you like. See the How do I add and edit shapes? page for more information.
  11. Save your bookmark using the button at the top.

If you want to move your book jackets and other elements around:

  1. To help you position your book jackets and other elements of the bookmark, turn your positioning guides on by clicking the gear icon in the top toolbar and turning on the ruler or grid lines.
  2. Click on the element that you want to move.
  3. There are several ways to move the element:
    • Click and drag the element with your mouse.
    • Use the arrow keys on your keyboard to move the element.
    • Click the Position button under the toolbar. Change the Top or Left values to move the element to an exact position from the top or left edges of the item. This will allow you to line up your book jackets and other elements easily.
  4. Click outside of your item to release the element.

If you want to add more book jackets of the same size to your bookmark:

  1. To add another book jacket that matches the size of the existing book jackets in your item, click on a jacket in your item.
  2. On your keyboard, press Ctrl + C to copy the jacket.
  3. Press Ctrl + V to paste your jacket. The copy will be pasted in the middle of your item.
  4. Position your new jacket image. See instructions above for using the positioning guides and moving your jacket image.
  5. Swap the jacket image for a different book:
    • Click on a book jacket in the template.
    • Click the Swap button in the toolbar.
    • From the image selector window, click the Book Jackets tab (or AV Cover Art tab).
    • Search for a book or AV item. Use the drop-down menu to select a field to search, then enter your search terms.
    • Click Select Jacket or Select Cover Art to insert that image in your template.
    • When you replace an image, the new image will be pulled in sized to that of the original image.
    • Use the square handles to crop the image box, or use the circular handles to enlarge or shrink the image. Or click the Fill button in the toolbar to fill the image box.
