File Uploads

  1. Clear User Uploads: Enabling this option clears the uploaded image cache before each user session.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

Store Settings

  4. Prevent Inline Scroll: Prevents the user from initially scrolling on the page when inline mode is enabled.
  5. Display mode: This refers to how the APP will show on your product page we have three options to choose from Mini Mode, Inline Mode and Full Window(Default).

  7. 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.
  8. File Upload Types: The admin can use this field to specify acceptable file upload types for the upload section on the product page.
  9. Price Selector Element: Similar to the inline version described above, this allows PitchPrint to capture the price and display it within the app.
