Using Page Guides

New Page

Add a new page to your Simplebooklet before the current page on your screen.

Click the first icon on top of the other three. Hovering over the icon will reveal the name of it.

You should then be directed to a new tab where you can choose what kind of page you'd like to add to your flipbook:
blank - Clicking this will add a new blank page to the next page of the current page you are on.
Upload PDF - Clicking this will attach a PDF of your choice to the next page of the current page you are on.
TEMPLATES BY CANVA - In order to select one of the pre-designed templates below, you may have to login to Canva first. From there, type in the keyword related to the kind of template you are search for and tap on it for it to be uploaded to your Simplebooklet. After selecting a template, that page will be attached to the next page of the current page you are on.
TEMPLATES BY CRELLO - Click Template By Crello. Similar to Canva, you may have to first login in order to search for and choose the template related to your interests. After selecting a template, that page will be attached to the next page of the current page you are on.

structure of your page, especially for page elements that are layered.

Click the icon again to bring back your other content.

Snap to Grid

Page elements will snap into alignment. Your top left corner of your page element will align to the blue grid square overlaid on your page.

Click the third icon from the top. Hovering over the icon will reveal the name of it.

This will cause the page elements to snap into alignment.

Click the last icon on the bottom of the four. Hovering over the icon will reveal the name of it.

After opening the toolbars, you only need to tap your desired page element once to stylize or perform an action.
