This document describes the properties of a document template. If you want to see what document templates are for and what kind of widgets can be placed on them, you can check the Document Templates overview documentation.

Appearance Properties

Page format

The page format determines the size of the page you are targeting with the document template. Examples are A4 (portrait) and A5 (landscape). You can also choose a Custom page format and use the properties ‘Page width’ and ‘Page height’ below.

Page width (inch)

The width of the page you are targeting with the document template. Automatically set by choosing a page format. If you change it, the page format will be set to ‘Custom’.

Page height (inch)

The height of the page you are targeting with the document template. Automatically set by choosing a page format. If you change it, the page format will be set to ‘Custom’.

Pixels per inch (PPI)

The pixel density is used to calculate the size of images based on the pixel value.

Margin left/right/top/bottom (inch)

The margins specify the distance between the border of the paper and the contents on all sides.

Show header/footer on first page
