Background Template

  • DPTPB Essential Template includes page called “Background Template”
  • Every object on this page will appear on other pages as background
    • This behavior can be changed in “Page Setup – Page Properties”
  • Instead of having to put Document information Margin Box on each of the pages separately, it is easier to put it here
  • Fields in Margin Box:
    • Company Name:
      • Use shape data pull-down menu to change company name
      • Margin Box contains some logos already, based on company chosen a logo is shown in the lower left hand corner
      • If desired logo is not available, just leave company name as “empty” and no logo is shown
    • Project: Project / Customer Name
