SignAgent Working with TemplatesAdding Visuals to Templates

Adding Visuals to Templates

Creating the Template (Illustrator)

  1. Set up the other fields in your template as normal
  2. Create a nested layer called "symbol" (or whatever your visual is called)
  3. Create a no fill / no stroke rectangle to the size that you want your symbol to be.
  4. Rename the rectangle to determine the image's alignment in the template. One of (left, center or right) and one of (top, middle or bottom)
  5. Export the SVG as usual

Set up the Sign Type (SignAgent™)

Create the fields in your sign type to match up with the names you gave the layers in your template. For more details on this, check out the original template creation tutorial here: Create a Simple Room ID Sign

Complete!

You should now be able to include this symbol in your sign artwork! The Symbol field should now allow you to pick an image from any visuals uploaded to SignAgent™.

For more info on how to upload and organize visuals in SignAgent™, check out this article: Manage Visuals

If your Symbol field is a text field instead of a symbol field, you'll need to adjust that field type to Visual. See here on how to do that: Manage Fields
