Printing for Podia
Because Podia uses standard letter sized paper, most Podia users print images right from their desktop printer.
Please consult your software’s Help menu for specific questions.
Word Processing Programs
1. Setup image in background (if using the templates supplied on our blog)
Choose "Watermark" or page background, depending on your software. Browse to the image you wish to use. Make sure the image is set to fill the background and uncheck "washed out" or "transparency" for best results.
2. Setting Margins and Columns
Margins: In most cases, margins for your word processing document will be limited by those of your printer. Set your document margins (usually found in the format menu) to the same as your printer. If the printer has different margins from one side to another, apply the larger margin to both sides of your document. We recommend setting the top and bottom margins the same.
Columns: In the Format menu locate the Columns option. Podia requires the two column setting. The space between the two columns is a very important factor in this step. It should be twice the size of the margins because it represents the right margin of one panel and the left margin of the other.
Other Panel Design Options
Many programs allow placement of photos, clip-art, background images, ruled lines and text boxes. Because abilities and commands vary widely from one program to another we recommend you consult your software’s Help menu for details.
