Layout Snippet Placement

When Layout Snippets are inserted into a document they will by default be centered and resized until they completly fit the document. With these placement settings, you can change the focal point for insertion as well as the Fit mode (Fit or Fill) in the general document properties.

Placement Margin Settings

Activating the Layout Snippet Placement Margin settings allows you to define where a layout Snippet is placed on the page, as normally layout Snippets automatically fit to the page size.

Clip Frames on Base Layer

The Placement Margin arrows next to each value input will tell Printess to bypass the Placement Margins in the respective direction for frames which have the Splitter or Dock to Bleed enabled in the Position tab, docking them to the bleed boundary rather than the Placement Margins. This feature can also be used to bypass the Add Gap Around frame border from the Splitter tool.

Check out our Universal Layout Snippet example and select the calendar to see this powerful feature in action!

When Clip Base-Layer is checked, all frames on the base layer will be clipped to the user-defined Snippet placement margins. This enables the placement of Snippets with bleed at page edges or inside margins (without bleed).

Apply Sticker Layout Snippet Paper Color

Sometimes a Layout needs control over either the background color (if it needs to be printed e.g. a canvas) of the target document or the paper color (if the product color needs to change but not get printed e.g. a mug).

This can be set by switching one or both options on. Once set the paper color of any applied Layout Snippet will change the target documents paper color/background shape color to the paper color of the Layout Snippet.
