Paperwork Designer - Toolbar Reference
You can save a document by clicking the Save button. Clicking the Save button will also save any edits you have made to an existing document.
You can change the Page Setup of the document by clicking the Page Setup button.
Here you can change the page size, page orientation and margins of the document.
Tip: If you add a picture to the document that is too big to fit on the document, you can temporarily change the document page size to be a size large enough to accommodate the picture, then zoom out using the Document Zoomer. You can then resize the picture down to the size you want, then set the document page size back to the correct size and restore the zoom to its previous setting.
Click this button to launch the Menu Editor.
The Menu Editor is used to determine which document is assigned to which print menu within Easify.
Document Section Editor
Click this button to launch the Document Section Editor.

Snap to Object
The Snap to Object button can be toggled on and off by clicking it.
When Snap to Object is on, the text boxes, pictures, mergefields and boxes & lines will automatically snap to the nearest object when they are moved.
Snap to Object only works for items that are visible in the Document Designer. So if you have a busy document with lots of items on it, you can zoom in to get a closer look at the item you are attempting to position and only objects that are still visible on the screen (within the field of view) will be snapped to.
If the Snap to Object button is off, you can temporarily enable Snap to Object by holding the Alt key on your keyboard whilst dragging the item.

You can change the font size of the currently selected item by selecting it from this list. Alternatively you can type your own size into the box and press the Enter key to accept your changes.
The Font Style buttons allow you to change the style (Bold, Italic and Underline) of the currently selected text box or mergefield.

Click the Corner Radius button to change the corner radius of the border of the currently selected text box, box or mergefield.
Each document that you create in Easify can be given a different default printer. This means you can have one document print to one printer, and another document print to another. For instance, you may want a product price label to print to a dedicated label printer, and you may have a shelf edge label that you would like to always print to an inkjet printer.
To select a default printer for a document, simply choose one from the Default Printer drop down list.
You do not have to specify a default printer for a document. If you do not specify a default printer, the user will be prompted for a printer when they try to print the document for the first time from their computer.
The default printer is specific to each computer, so if you have multiple computers running Easify on your network, users will be prompted for which printer to use when they print the document for the first time.
If you have a shared printer on your network named, say, "Shared Label Printer", you can set "Shared Label Printer" as the default printer for a document, and as long as all of the other Easify computers on your network have the printer installed with the same name i.e. "Shared Label Printer" then they will be able to print the document to that printer without having to make any changes.

Clicking the Use Code39 Barcode Delimiters button will automatically add delimiting asterisks to the selected item in the Document Designer so that it can be read by a barcode scanner.

Allow Textbox to Grow
Clicking Allow Textbox to Grow button allows the selected mergefield in the Document Designer to grow if its contents are too big to fit within it when printed.
When a mergefield grows it will cause the section it is in to also grow to contain it.
Mergefields that grow too big for the section they are in will overflow onto a new page.
Clicking the Hide Formula button allows you to create or edit the Hide Formula for the selected mergefield in the Document Designer.
Clicking the Value Formula button allows you to create or edit the Value Formula for the selected mergefield in the Document Designer.
