    Default TIPS and TRICKS entry! Version 2.0

    (notice header mentions TIPS and TRICKS and states which version I'm talking
    about...PLEASE start yours with that..don't want to miss giving out points!)

    TIP for flipping and shadowing...Version 2.0
    If you want to flip an item that has shadow on it..the SHADOW will not flip
    correctly with the item..sooooo
    UNCHECK the item of it's shadow BEFORE flipping it..After flipping it..Add shadow.! To do that just click on the item and when box comes up..UNCHECK the shadow!

    Default Tips & Tricks v2 - Publish one page to an image file

    It is now possible to publish only one page of a Scrapbook album to an image. From the page you want to publish, go to the top menu bar of Scrapbook Max, Select Page, then "save as image". There are several file types you can publish to as well as choose the quality of your published image which will change your file size.

    If you choose "custom" for the size you need to change the zero for height and width to your desired size or it will not work. The size measurement is pixels. So 12x12 size page at 300 dpi would need to be 3600 by 3600.

    Default Tips & Tricks v2 - Twice as many shapes - invert

    Scrapbook Max users love shapes. Now we have twice as many shapes. They have added invert. Any shape you have, you can invert. Many times this will give you really cool shape for a page border etc. When you double mouse click the embellishment or paper it will open up the property window. There is a box you mark to invert your shape and it will give you a preview. Here is an example of an original shape and then the inverted shape.

    A favorite new feature but there are so many how do you choose a favorite.
