Admin Settings

The  Settings Page controls the PitchPrint app per domain and has the following settings

General

  1. Print Cut Marks: When enabled, cut marks are printed on the final PDF file using the bleed margins you have set while creating the design.
  2. Force Mini UI: This forces the app to always hide the left panel even on large screens. By default, the left panel is shown but hidden when viewed on a less wider display like a tablet. When hidden, the user can always click the icons on the top left to display the panel as an overlay.
  3. Lock Aspect Ratio: Enabling this makes it impossible to stretch or pull an image or shape by the sides or top rather, by the corners so image and shapes retain their original aspect ratios.
  4. Floating Font Size: This gives users ability to enter font sizes with decimal values, more granular like 12.5, 16.2 etc..
  5. Render PDF in RGB: This forces the PDF distiller to render the final PDF using only RGB Values. Please read more on colors to understand how this works.
  6. Show Bleeds as Dashed lines: This shows the bleed lines in dashed line format as against a solid line.
  7. Show Thumb Navigation: Enabling this removes the left / right arrows used for navigation and displays the pages in a thumbnail format on the middle-right side of the window as shown below, the arrow indicates the current page: 
  8. Enable Image Thumb Title: This will show image title at the bottom of each thumbnail images in the designer gallery.
  9. Enable Gallery Search: This will show the search input field in the galleries like images, shapes etc so users can search your collection using keywords. You can always set keyword on your uploaded assets.
  10. Enable Save for Later: This allows users to save their designs to continue at anytime from their accounts page.
  11. Enable Live Editor: This is a premium feature that allows admins to view all current app users on their sites and offer to help them with their designs. With this feature, store owners can edit customer's designs live remotely just similar to google docs editing.
  12. Highlight on Item Hover: With this enabled, hovering over an item on the canvas will display its bounds. The anchor fill color is used for this with an opacity of 0.3 I think ;)
  13. Image Encode Quality: This is the value used in encoding the design image previews. A higher value is better but obviously requires larger bandwidth to save.
  14. Snap Range: The value used for object snapping on the canvas while moving items around.
  15. New Text Size: The default size of a new text placed on a design canvas.
  16. New Text Message: Default text displayed for a new text placed on a design canvas.
  17. Current Theme: Use this to select the site's theme. You can customize your themes here
  18. Large Button Style: This is the style used for the top main buttons. You can have them as just icons, icons and labels or just the labels.
  19. Watermark: Select or upload a picture you want to use as watermark while the design is being edited by users. A sample is attached, you can right click to download and use:

  20. Mask Shape Upload Indicator: Use this option to upload a picture that instructs your users to click to upload on a mask shape. This is only used where you have clickable mask shapes. A sample image is attached and you can right click to download and use:

Anchors

  1. Size: The default size of the item control anchor on the canvas. It is larger on Mobile devices.
  2. Style: Option for a rectangular or circular anchor
  3. Stroke Color: Color for the anchor's outer stroke
  4. Fill Color: Anchor fill color.

Colors

  1. Bleed Line Color: Color used to display the bleed lines.
  2. Snap Line Color: While editing, snap lines enables users to snap items to its surrounding element's bounds. This shows a dashed line on the canvas and you set that color here.
  3. Fold Line Color: The fold lines allows you to define fold boundaries on the design, which are not printed. Use this option to set the color used to display those lines.

Plugins

  1. Facebook: Enable this to show the Facebook panel under Pictures.
  2. Instagram: Enable this to show the Instagram panel under Pictures.
  3. Pixabay: We have integrated Pixabay for photo search and this allows customers to import photos from Pixabay. First, you need to register with Pixabay and generate an API Key. This is where you enter that API Key.
    However, please note you need to also send Pixabay an email requesting them to enable your APIKey for use via PitchPrint. By default, the API Key will not work unless they enable it for you on their end.

File Uploads

  1. Flatten SVGs: Enabling this option will flatten all uploaded SVG images. This gives a better result in terms of what you see is what you get but then limits ability of customers to change the uploaded shape's colors.
  2. Flatten all other Vectors: Enabling this applies the same effect as above to other file formats like PDF, Illustrator, CorelDraw files etc. This is a highly recommended option as there are various vector files customers can upload and we can't guarantee their fidelity across board. Flattening these files upon upload ensures they get exactly what was in the file.
  3. Vector to Raster DPI: This is used to determine the DPI to be used for flattening uploaded files if any of the above is enabled.

Image DPI Check

  1. Enable DPI Check: This option will limit users from stretching their uploaded images beyond certain limits to maintain quality.
  2. DPI Minimum: Use this to set the value for the DPI check.

Store Settings

  1. Show App on Startup: This enables the designer to automatically show when your product page launches.
  2. Retain Page Images: After a design has been customized, the app changes the product page's preview pictures to the new design's. Enabling this will force the app not to change the product page's images.
  3. Customization Required: Enabling this will force customers to first edit a design before they can add to cart. In some cart frameworks, this is achieved by hiding the Add to Cart button until a design is customized.
  4. Download PDF in Order Details: This option gives users the option to download their designs in their account page when an order has been placed.
  5. Inline Selector Element: This is where you specify an html element selector present on your product page where PitchPrint designer can attach itself and load inline as a part of your page instead of being displayed full screen. Usually customers can send us their product page URL and we will search for a suitable element and send back its value. This is because there are different themes out there each with its own layout and naming schemes.
  6. Price Selector Element: Similar to the inline version described above, this allows PitchPrint to capture the price and display it within the app.
  7. Custom JavaScript: This is where you type in your custom JavaScript you wish to run when the app is loaded. You can use this for language customization.
  8. Custom CSS Style: Use this to specify additional styles you wish to apply to the designer when loaded.
