The EDIT tab is where you add and edit the content you have on your Simplebooklet pages.


From here you can add the following:

  • A Link Hotspot
  • Many different types of buttons
  • Images and image blocks
  • Text
  • Clipart and shapes
  • Videos & Audio
  • Code, embed code, and forms
  • Hyperlinks and link hotspots
  • Call to action and content buttons
  • Third party integrations
  • + More



To add these to your Simplebooklet, select any of these features of the left-hand toolbar.





Positioning Content

Every piece of content that you add is a separate element on your page. This is what allows you to have complete control over the layout of content on your page. You can drag and drop any content element to anywhere you want.  Each content element is broken into two separate parts: the content container and your content.

To select an element single tap on the content container.



When you have selected an element, you can drag it around, resize it, and rotate it.  You cannot edit the content, you are only controlling the containing box of the content. When you single tap the content container, the editor toolbar and the style toolbar are revealed.


Content Container - this is a special container that holds your content (it can hold anything, from text to images to code). You can style and edit how the container of the element works without affecting the content inside it.

Your Content - this is the stuff inside the container. It could be a photo you uploaded or text you added to a page or even a video.



You have tools to edit and modify each of these things separately.


Editor Toolbar 
The editor toolbar lets you apply functionality to the container of the content (not the content itself). For example, you can make the container a hyperlink, or move it up and down relative to other content on your page. You can also copy the content container and paste it on another page.


Style Toolbar 
You can also style the content container. You can style the border and background, add drop shadows, padding between the container and the content, and even add a drop shadow. 




Editing Content


To edit your content inside the content container, double click on the element. 




Element Tools - Have to do with positioning and orientation of your content on Simplebooklet.

Border - Can adjust the relative positioning of the element on your Simplebooklet, also to add visual effects to the border of your element.

Background - adjust the background colour of your element.

Block - Add opacity or padding.





Page Organization



There are four buttons along the right top corner of your page.



 These will let you do the following:

Add Page Button - Add a new page.
Outline View Button - Allows you to see all your content containers on your page (useful if you've layered content below other content).
Grid Button - Places a grid on your page that will snap the top left corner of your content container to the grid (useful for aligning content).
Editor and Style Toolbar Button - Allows you to open the editor and style toolbars without selecting a content container.




Pages Management

The pages menu lets you add, delete, reorder, resize, and color your pages. 



You can also insert additional PDFs here to create additional pages in your booklet. 

You can flip between the pages of your booklet by tapping the page turn icon to the left and right of your pages.
