Making and Importing "Workable Templates"

How to save a file as a "workable template":

  1. Create your page or card in StoryBook Creator Plus. If you only want to save ONE page or card, create it as the ONLY page within that project.
  2. Once you have it just the way you want it, click on "Save".
  3. On the Home Ribbon at the top of the screen, click on the drop down arrow below the Save Icon.
  4. Choose the second choice, "Save As". You can choose to rename your page or card.
  5. Browse to a folder that you will remember, and save your page to that folder.
  6. Now, you are able to share that card or page as a workable template by emailing it as an attachment!

The recipient of the card or page can import your project into their StoryBook Creator Plus by following these steps:

  1. DOWNLOAD the item onto the computer desktop or into a folder. Do NOT try to open" the card or page.
  2. OPEN or CREATE a same-sized project in StoryBook Creator Plus.
  3. For example, if the item is a 4 x 6 landscape card, you would need to open or create a 4 x 6 landscape project.)
  4. Go to the Home Ribbon at the top of the screen and click on IMPORT PAGE BROWSE to the place the card was downloaded and import it.
  5. It will come in as a workable template and can be customized, printed and shared!!!!
