Placeholders

A placeholder is a piece of text that is personalized based on the data you have registered. Default content fields are available. You can create new ones by clicking on Add new.

To add a placeholder to your photo product, you must first add text. When this feature is activated, a placeholder box will appear in the Text Editor next to the text customization tools. Select an option from the available choices and the placeholder will be added to your text. It is possible to add multiple placeholders. Note that only the text within the parentheses corresponds to the placeholder, allowing for dynamic data changes.

We recommend that you enable Automatic font size to prevent longer text from being outside the Text Box, as text lengths will vary. Once you have customized your text, click on OK. The text with the chosen placeholder will be added to the photo product.
