DocBuilder Tips & Tricks: Saving Savvy

June 4, 2012

Sara’s Tips and Tricks for WebbMason DocBuilder, final entry.

This tip is for working with PowerPoint presentations before you send them to WM DocBuilder to be printed. If you need presentation handouts and want to be environmentally-friendly, a great way to do that is to print to print 2, 3, 4 or even 6 slides together on a single page — instead of printing each slide as a full page. You can do this easily by changing your print setting. Depending on your version of Microsoft Office, the steps may vary slightly. With your file open, go to the print screen. Change your print settings to the desired number of slides per page. The next step is important. Choose a printer that will print the file as a PDF or use a PowerPoint plug-in that automatically writes the file as a PDF with your print settings applied. If you simply try to save your file as a PDF with these settings, it will revert back to the full-page version.

DocBuilder Tips & Tricks: Double the Ease

May 28, 2012

Sara’s Tips and Tricks for WebbMason DocBuilder, fourth of five entries.

This one is perhaps my favorite.  When rearranging your print files, the Move Last function does not get enough credit.  I recommend using this technique when you have five or more print files in your document.  Instead of moving each file up or down until you get them all lined up, start with the file that you want to appear first in your document.  Click the double-down arrow to move it to the last position.  Then find the one you want to appear second, and tell that one to Move Last.  Keep going until you end up with very first document in the first position.  Voila!

DocBuilder Tips & Tricks Series: Naming with Purpose

May 21, 2012

Sara’s Tips and Tricks for WebbMason DocBuilder, third of five entries.

WM DocBuilder allows you to upload files, select the ones you need, and then rearrange them in the order you want them to print using up and down arrows.  However, if you have a large project with a large number of print files, a little extra work on the front-end will save you some time.  Before you upload your files, rename them with a number in the beginning of the file name corresponding to the order in which it should print (i.e. 1_Executive Summary, 2_Contract, 3.1_ExhibitA, 3.2_Exhibit B, etc.).  When the files are added to a new document, it will be super-easy to put them in the right order!

DocBuilder Tips & Tricks Series: PDF love

Sara’s Tips and Tricks for WebbMason DocBuilder, second of five entries.

 

WM DocBuilder accepts a variety of file types, however, converting large files to a PDF before uploading means they will already be print-ready, and greatly reduces the processing time.
