Packaging properties

In the package properties you can set:

  • Packaging - here you set the name of the packaging.
  • Number of Basic Units - the number of pieces occurring in one package.
  • Measurements - in this section you set the width, height and depth of the packaging.

Setting the default package for the planogram

Select the Package you want to set as default and click on Make Default button.

This checkbox Default will show what Package type will be used as default. In this case, it will be „Yoghurt“.

Default settings

It is necessary to figure out which Package version will be a default one. The default package should be the package which is displayed the most often. It will be then displayed in the planogram in the Project Editor or Planogram Editor when placing this product into the template. You can later change the default package to another one in the planogram.

Picture Editing

Below the preview of the package image you can find seven buttons:

  1. Change: assigns a new image to the product
  2. Rotate: a new window will appear in which you can rotate the image
  3. Crop: a new window will appear in which you can crop the image
  4. Copy: the image will be copied to the clipboard, then it can be pasted into any document by pressing Ctrl + V (Cmd + V)
  5. Paste: use this button to paste the copied image into the clipboard
  6. Delete: deletes the existing image
  7. History: Displays all images that were previously used for the selected product with the dates they were changed. It is often use when you incorrectly crop a picture of the package and you want to return to the original picture.

If you place a mouse over any button, its function will show.
