Create More Clipart Templates
Unlike Fonts, Masks and Artworks which can be uploaded directly in the Define Design, Clipart must be uploaded from the Resource Clipart dashboard.
Check these articles to understand how to upload and manage Clipart files.
Learn more: (1) Upload & Edit Cliparts, (2) Hierarchy of Clipart Categories
NOTICE: Clipart isn't compatible with Mask. You won't be able to upload Clipart if you've already chosen a Mask or vice versa.
To add Clipart to your design:
Click the Clipart button.
All of your uploaded clipart categories will be displayed in the Clipart Library.
There are two methods for adding Clipart to your design:
To add a Clipart Category "Cat Breeds" to this clipart layer, hover over that category and click Select.
If you just want to pick one Sub-category "Cat Breed (Short Hair)", hover over that sub-category and click Select.
In this step, you CANNOT pick a Directory (such as: CAT, DOG COLLECTION, CAT DEMO directories in the example below)
To make it easier to manage these layers later on, alter the clipart's name as soon as possible after adding it. Simply double click on the layer and change its name.
To resize a clipart, drag the little blue dot at the clipart's border.
To rotate a clipart, click and drag the top blue dot.
Arrange clipart's position:
When adding a clipart, you should be aware of how the arrangement of these layers works: The layer's position in Layers section decides if it will stay forward or backward from the other layers.
For instance, if you want the Cat Eyes to appear in the front, you should layer them on top the Cat Breeds layer. Drag and drop the layers to reorganize them.
Advance Options Setting:
You will have the Set Conditions For This Layer button when defining Clipart/ Text/ Mask.
Learn More: Setting Condition for Clipart Layer
Layers Options Setting:
Click the Layer icon to open its Layers Options section, there are 4 main sections to take note of:
To alter a clipart, simply click on this field and select another clipart; you won't have to delete this layer and replace it with another.
Click on the little triangle at the right to dropdown all of your clipart categories > Choose your new clipart.
Clipart Required Toggle is ALWAYS activated by default. This option is used to set a specific option as a "must-select" before the customer can finish customizing their product.
In case you want to give customers the option not to view a clipart option, just create a Dummy (empty) Clipart for that layer. Dummy Clipart is a blank clipart that gives the customer the option to skip showing a specific clipart. Dummy Clipart usually has a thumbnail of "NO".
To make a clipart as default, hover over it and click Set as Default. A "Default" label will appear in the upper right corner of the selected clipart image.
Default Clipart serves as an avatar for this clipart, indicating that this clipart will be first seen by customers.
For example, if you choose the yellow cat as the default, the yellow cat will appear first on the live store, whereas if you choose the black cat as the default, the black cat will appear first.
This section will assist you in changing the Clipart's label name.
Double-click on the type box and fill in your desired texts, and it will display as a label for this clipart.
If you don't type anything, the system will automatically fill in the name of the clipart category that you selected.
CREATE MORE CLIPART TEMPLATES
Templates are different design versions of a product. Depending on your preferences, these versions may include a different amount of cliparts/people/genders/...
You can add extra diversity to your product by adding more clipart templates to give the customers more options to personalize the product.
When defining a product (a design) with versions of different clipart quantity (e.g.: number of dogs, cats, etc.), we recommend making the first template (using 1 cat clipart) as perfect as possible so that it may be used as a guide to create other versions (using 2, 3, 4 cat cliparts). To duplicate a template, you can click the two stacked square icon.
- Two, three, or four cats can be added to a same design and create different Clipart Templates, to give the customers more options if they have more than one cat.
- Pink and Blue versions can be added to a same design, to give parents options depending on their child's gender.
After adding Clipart Templates, define them so that customers can adjust the number of cliparts in their design (Actually, they will choose a design template having the correct number of cats)
This example will show you how to create two additional templates, one with two cats and the other with three cats.
Step 1: Go to the Template tab and click the Plus icon to add another template.
Step 2: To make it easier for you to manage these templates, we recommend that you rename them by clicking the Pen icon.
Step 3: Simply define as many cat cliparts as you like to each template. Then press SAVE.
When switching between these Templates without clicking Save, the system will prompt you to save.
After finished editing your design, the final step is to re-order these layers.
Learn more about the Re-order Field button in the Additional Functions: Basic knowledge of the Define Design dashboard
Layer that has Logical Conditions will have a chain icon at the right. Beside it is the (x): Number of Conditions in that layer.
Drag and drop the layers to the correct position to reorganize them.
Click Apply when you're done.
Tooltips are explanatory lines that appear when customers hover the mouse over a clipart. To enable/disable the tooltips feature:
Step 1: Navigate to the Resources > Cliparts.
Step 2: Open the Clipart Category/Sub-Category that you want to enabled/disabled tooltips.
Step 3: Find the Advanced Settings section. In there, you'll see the toggle "Hide Clipart Name as Tooltip when Hovering".
If the toggle is disabled, then the clipart's tooltip is currently active.
If the toggle is enabled, then the clipart's tooltip will be hidden.
The system will automatically use the image's name as the content of the tooltips. As a result, it's recommended that you should change the clipart file's name before uploading, to make the process of sorting and showing the clipart on the live store more effectively.
