Customize the looks

Customize Design Mode gives you an incredible point and click power to totally customize the look of any website theme selected – beyond recognition.

Just point and click with your mouse to change colors, design images and more.

Even better, your software even takes care of the images sizes to ensure they will automatically fit your selected website theme! You won’t believe the web-design power we have given your mouse. An Undo function allows you to test a new look before applying it.

You can also easily restore the original look of the Website theme by simply selecting the theme again .

(Note: You can not undo design image changes, but you can always restore the original website design images)

Changing background colors is an easy and fast process. Text colors are automatically adjusted and will always be readable.

1.  Click on any colored area in the Preview window.

2.  A small menu pops up.

3.  Select Edit color in the popup menu for the appropriate item.

4.  Select a color in the color selector window.

Website Colors, Text Colors

These are the colors used in your website. Click on a button to select the Website or text color you want to change - then select a new color.

Select the color by clicking on the color palette provided.

A powerful feature of the Designer is the ability to modify the color scheme, and to  export and import color schemes.

Edit an existing Design image

Design images are images which determine the look and feel of a website. You can change most Design images easily in Designer.

Click on the Design image you want to change in the preview window. Note: Page and product images cannot be changed in Designer. A small menu pops up. Select edit image for the appropriate item. The image dialog opens, allowing you to change the image.

You can delete or replace the image, or edit it with your favorite image editor.

The ShopFactory image editor will even help you to resize the image you select to make it fit properly. Image changes cannot be undone. However the original image from your chosen theme can be restored.

Add a design image

Images can be added to an area in much the same way as editing an existing image. Click on the area you want to add an image to in the preview window.

If the Add image option appears, you can add an image.

Navigating links in the Preview window

When you change website colors, other pages may be affected as well. You can navigate to all parts of your website to view the effect a color change will have.

To navigate, press the Ctrl key on your keyboard whilst clicking on the link.

Undo your changes

Don't like the new color you selected? Simply undo your change.

The undo and redo functions allow you to experiment with your website's color scheme until you are happy with it.

Image changes in designer mode cannot be undone, but you can usually restore the original image which came with the selected theme in the image selection dialog.

Saving your changes

Changes you make will not be applied to your website until you save them.

Your color changes and frameset adjustments will be saved using anyone of the following methods:

·    Clicking on the Save button in the main toolbar.

·    Exit Designer mode and clicking on OK in response to the “Apply changes?” message box.

Import and export color scheme

If you like the color scheme that you have created, it can be exported for use in another project.

To export, click on and give the scheme a descriptive file name.

To import, click on and select the file that your color scheme was exported to.
