Studio Tips and Tricks

August 1, 2008

Check out these cool tips for using Heritage Makers Studio!

– Locking each item on your page is a smart way to avoid moving or deleting that object. But locking every item on each page of your book can take a lot of clicks. Now you can do it in one! On your “Edit” menu, you’ll find a “Lock” option. Click on that to see a drop-down menu with the following options: lock all on the page, unlock all on the page, lock all in the project, and unlock all in the project. Fast, easy, secure.

– Do you ever want to stretch an object, but you don’t want to have to go to the Layout tab to unlock proportions, make your change, and then lock proportions again? You can stretch an object quickly and easily just by holding down the Shift key on your keyboard as you drag the sides of the object. When you release the Shift key, the proportions of your object will automatically default to “locked” again.

– After you’ve swapped a photo, if you want to make adjustments to the current photo on the page, lock it first and then go to the “Tools” tab on your toolbox. When your image is locked, you will see “scale” and “rotation” that aren’t available when the photo is unlocked.
