Getting started with Acquia DAM Classic Dynamic Templates

The information below will help you get started designing Acquia DAM Classic Dynamic Templates with Adobe InDesign® and the PrintUI Tools extension for Adobe InDesign®. For more information about installing and configuring the PrintUI tools extension, see Dynamic Templates.

Designing templates

PrintUI Tools enables you to combine the power of Adobe InDesign® for document creation with the ease of customization with a Flash-based web editor. A dynamic template is an Adobe InDesign® document containing layers and frames that are customizable by your end users. For more information about designing templates, see the Tips for Designing Templates for PrintUI PDF file.

Multi-size templates are currently unavailable.

Designing templates for HTML

PrintUI Tools offers two methods for outputting HTML: Email and Microsite HTML. For more information about designing HTML templates, see the Tips for Designing PrintUI Templates for HTML PDF file, or download sample HTML templates.

Imposing documents

During template initialization, you can add an optional imposition layer to create an imposition template. Many different types of documents can be imposed for output, and the first step in the design process is to decide exactly what sort of imposition you need.
