Create a new document

All demos generate A4 portrait print documents. The page dimensions, marings, amount of pages, etc. are set automatically by PimPrint. So just create an empty new document.

Plugin - InDesign document creation

All demos are implemented in a way that they can create single and facing page documents. The setting Facing Pages (marked green in the screenshot above) can either be unchecked (single page document) or checken (facing page document). The setting Start (merked red in the screenshot above) can be set to 1 or 2, to start on a left or right page. The only difference in generation will be the generation of page layout elements.

Generate a document

To generate a document with the PimPrint Demo, create a new document as described above.
Open the PimPrint InDesign plugin, open the Project pane, select a project, a publication and click on the green Start Generation button.

Plugin - Getting Started Publication selected

This will start the rendering process of the InDesign document.

Basic Concept - Document generation

Generating InDesign documents with PimPrint is as easy. Now it is a good time to explore the demo projects.
