Editing Pages





The interface has two modes: "Normal" and "Layout Editing".  Use the Main Menu >  Edit Layout to enable the Layout Editing mode. When editing, you will always see the Pages button at the top-right. Tap Done to go back to Normal.

Layout editing allows you to drag items on the screen, resize items, change the type of data displayed, create new items, and it also enables special setup options in the context menu for some items.

In editing mode, tap the Pages button (top right). This shows a list of the different screen sizes/orientations (eg phone portrait) and a set of pages for each screen. When you rotate the device from portrait to landscape, it switches to a different set of pages. You can design the pages so the data best uses the screen real-estate. Use the context menu in the pages list to add/remove pages or change the page order.

Items can be "locked" to prevent accidentally moving/resizing them.

Each item has a "Layer" (1-9) which determines the behavior of overlapping items. Higher layers are drawn over the top of lower layers. Items in the same layer are not allowed to overlap and will rearrange themselves if you drag one on top of another, when editing the layout.

Layout files (*.pstf) are compatible between all the different platforms and can be imported/exported (However they are not compatible with dvtf files from the old app). You may find it easier to use a PC/Mac to edit the layout. On the desktop platforms, you can resize the window to easily preview different screen sizes. Save the file on iCloud, Drive or whatever to allow you to open it on your mobile device.

You can also Import or export individual pages in the layout.

A detailed description of all the available data items and buttons is here. Right-click or use the drop-down menu and Change Data to select a different item.
