New design options for your document content

In order to structure a document in terms of content, it is helpful to create headings in different levels of structure and to number them if necessary. Headings in different structure levels (possibly with additional numbering) help to structure documents in terms of content.

From now on you can also use our new “Style Decorator” to structure your SMASHDOC in even more detail and make it more visually appealing. The Style Decorator offers you the following additional options to mark a text section:

  • Title
  • Subtitle
  • Subheading
  • Citation
  • Infoboxes

To assign a formatting from the Style Decorator to a text section, first select the text sections to be formatted, then click on the Style Decorator dropdown box at the top of the formatting bar and select the desired style, see the figure below. The text section will then be formatted according to your selection.

The new Style Decorator is especially useful if you want to make documents with different content elements more transparent, for example by organizing the body and attachments using subtitles. Or you want to show certain information separately in an info box, as well as quotes that further support your content or individual chapters.

Please note: Text sections that you format as titles, subtitles or subheadings do not appear in the table of contents! They only serve for the optical structuring of your document.

Integration of your own styles

Your documents require different or more styles, e. g. to produce a book or brochure from them? No problem!
The Style Decorator can of course be extended by any number of other styles that you can specify. However, this is only possible in the private cloud or on premise version of SMASHDOCs.

Just contact us and let us know how you want to use the Style Decorator.
