Replace or Add Candids
If you choose Replace candid, existing images will be removed from their frame if you drop a new image onto them. If you choose Add new candid, a new image dragged onto the canvas will always appear in a new frame. If you choose Ask every time, a prompt will appear asking if the new image should replace the existing image, or drop into a new frame.
Enable a grid on your canvas to assist with image placement. You can sent the units (inches or centimeters) and the spacing between the lines, as well as the color of the lines themselves. Turn on Alignment Grid lines to magnetically snap frames to the grid.
Turn this option on to enable magnetic snapping to the page margins.
Turn this option on to enable the size and position of elements as you resize or move them on your page.
Show Candid Stats
Turn this on to see the number of time each candid image has been used in your book. If no number shows on the image preview, the image has not been used.
When you select a frame on your page, a toolbar will appear to display the option that you may apply to it. Choose where that toolbar will appear: either above the selected frame itself, docked to the top of the page, or docked to the page side.
