Formatting portrait page titles

Portrait title formatting is set in the Portrait editor under the Layout tab. 

Title styling is set under the Visual tab.

Layout options

The contents of the portrait page title are set in the Layout’s Title box. The %s code indicates that the portrait group name is being used to title the page.

If your portrait section consists of a single group, the portrait page will be titled after the group name. (eg: Track: Staff  is used to create the page, the page title is “Staff” by default.). If you portrait section includes multiple groups, each group is titled after the group name (in the example below, the grade number is used).

The title contents may be customized. To customize all groups in the current section, ensure that Apply to section is chosen. Type into the Title box (in this example, the word “Grade” is added before the group code), then apply the changes. All titles for all groups in the section will be updated.

To apply custom text to a single group, choose Apply to this page only. Again, type your text into the title box (add to the code or replace it entirely) then apply the changes. Only the individual group’s title will be updated.

To turn titles off, use the Page title toggle. The portraits will realign after titles are turned off.

Design tip: turn titles off if you want create custom graphics instead of an automated title. Use it in combination with knockouts or margins adjustment.

Under Layout Advanced options, set rules for your title position.

Page Title sets the rule for title display for multi-page groups. Choose First page aligned to add titles to the first page of every group with subsequent pages grid-aligned. Choose Every Page to title all pages in the section. Choose First Page Only to title the first page but start the grid at the top of the next page.

Page Title Heights can be set in four ways, based on the height of a row of portraits. The rows will expand or contract to accommodate the change in title spacing.

Visual styling options

Click on the Visual tab under Portraits to access title font properties.  Choose to restyle an individual title or the current page,or an entire multi-page section.

To change styling options, click on the title on your page, then choose Text.

Standard text styling properties are available – color, font, font size, weight and style (if available in the selected font).

Use the alignment options to position your title within its frame, relative to the page margins.
