Folded boxes are three dimensional by nature. To picture a design on a
two dimensional surface mapped on a three dimensional object is difficult
or simply impossible. 

With [[YourBox|]] you may immediately experience what your design will look
like on an interactive three-dimensional previewbox.


This preview may even be enlarged significantly so one may get a preview
of the complete composition in great detail. The 3D preview's upper left corner
you find a ''+'' sign. A single mouse click on this ''+'' button will enlarge the
3D preview to full screen size.

A very simple box with different colors for each face is a good first example
to demonstrate the composer's basic features and to learn about what  you
can do with the [[YourBox]] [[Composer]].

In the lower right corner you will find the property panel. The canvas is the
only object selected and it's sole property is colour.

Pick a colour with the mouse. Click on the colour panel and move the mouse
holding the left mouse button down.


The selected color may then be applied to the canvas by clicking  the "Select" button
in the colour property panel.


Do this for each face. Select one face after the other with a mouse-click on the
appropriate box face in the canvas select tool in the upper right corner of the
[[Composer]]. Select a colour and click "Select".


After a couple of clicks all faces are coloured and your first decoration for your
folding box is finished. Click on the [[3D Preview]] tag and move the result with the
mouse. There it is your first box you decorated yourself in 3D.


[[Selected objects|Pick Object]] may be aligned relative to the current canvas.

[[Double-click|Object Menu]] an object


in the upper left corner the [[object menu|Object Menu]] will appear. This menu shows
a menu item ''Align''.

A mouse click on this menu item will open a submenu showing additional
options to align a selected object relative to the current canvas.


The drop down menu ''Align'' may be opened with the [[keyboard shortcut|Shortcuts]] key ''a'' as well.


On the [[Composer's|Composer]] left hand side one will find a menu listing menu items to place
objects on the canvas. These are  [[Symbols]], [[Pictures]] and [[Basic Shapes]] but also
background patterns and textures for the entire folding box.


Each individual folding box has it's own background patterns and textures. With a simple
mouse click on a background pattern the pattern is immediately applied to the folding box
and will be displayed in the [[canvas|Canvas]] and [[3D Preview]] as well.


To return to a background free version of your box simply click on the white background,
wich is always the first item on the top left corner of the background pattern selector.


On the [[Composer's|Composer]] left hand side one will find a menu listing menu items to place
objects on the canvas. These are [[Symbols]], [[Pictures]], [[QRCode]] and [[Basic Shapes]].
Basic Shapes are squares, triangles and circles but also more complex shapes like
segments, rings and masks.


[[YourBox|]] provides plenty of Basic Shapes. They are arranged in classes. You may
select a category by hovering with the mouse over the shape preview line on top of
the shape-panel. A drop down menu will open and will show sample lines for different
classes of basic shapes. Click on one of those and you will get all the symbols in that
class on a clickable matrix


from where you can select a symbol of your choice.

The Canvas represents one face of your box and sits in the middle of the
[[Composer]]. In the upper rght corner you will find the unwrapped box. You
my simply click on one of the box faces to switch to the canvas of this face.


You may copy a complete Canvas to another one, see [[Canvas Copy]].

You may as well paint on all faces of the unwrapped box.
As soon as you leave the faces in the canvas select tool, all the
canvases will appear with a red border.


Clicking the left mouse button now, will show the entire unwrapped box
in the canvas. The edges of the box faces are displayed as well as a
mask for better orientation.


The face edges still remain visible even when objects are put on top of them.
One may place objects on one or more box faces without loosing track of the
exact position of the object on the unwrapped box cutting die.


The [[YourBox|]] composer is an interactive paint tool, easy to use and with many
features providing many items and objects combinable in an extra easy fashion
to design zippy and gorgeous compositions for your individual customised
folding box.


On the Composer's left hand side one will find a menu listing menu items to place
objects on the canvas. The canvas represents the selcted face of the folding box.

On the lower right corner the object's property panels are displayed.
With the canvas only, there is just one property and this is colour.

In the upper right corner you will find the box cutting die, which is the unfolded box.
Here one may select a box face and switch from one face and canvas to another.

This panel has tags to switch between cutting die and 3D preview. Not every single
change in your design will be immediatly reflected in the 3D vie, in particular moving
objects around will not refresh the 3D preview automatically. In the lower left corner
you wil find a refresh button. This button refreshes the 3D view to the latest state of
your composition.

In many cases one will decorate just one box face and one would like
to copy this composition to all the other faces and modify it there slightly.

[[YourBox|]] has a feature to achieve right this particularly quick and easy.


A mouse click on the menu item ''Canvases'' opens the canvas menu.

This menu shows menu items for three different purposes:
* to select a canvas. Equivalent to the canvas selector in the upper right corner.
* to copy all objects from one canvas to another
* to copy all objects from one canvas to all canvases
* to clear all objects but the background colour from the current canvas
Copying a canvas to another one will copy the canvas background color as well.
Clearing the objects from a canvas will clear all objects but the canvas
background colour. To reset the canvas background colour, select the canvas
and clear the colour with the ''clear'' button in the colour-picker property menu
in the lower left corner of the [[YourBox|]] [[composer|Composer]].

The [[YourBox]] [[composer|Composer]] allows you to copy objects in three different ways

using the:
* keyboard - key ''c''
* keyboard - key ''t''
* [[object menu|Object Menu]]
* canvas menu
Pressing the key ''c'' produces a copy of the [[selected object|Pick Object]] directly on the
current [[canvas|Canvas]].

Pressing the key ''t'' copies a selected object to another [[canvas|Canvas]].


Double clicking an object displays the [[object menu|Object Menu]] in the [[composer's|Composer]] upper
right corner. The [[object meu|Object Menu]] shows two menu items. Clicking the first item
''Copy'' will produce a copy of the selected object on the current cavas
This is equivalent to the keyboard shortcut ''c''. The second item ''Copy to'' allows
to copy the selected object to another canvas. This is equivalent to the
keyboard shortcut ''t''.


[[Where to begin?]]
Selecting a text object on the current [[canvas|Canvas]] will open three property panels in the
[[YourBox|]] composer property area in the lower left corner. Each of these different
property panels may be opened by clicking on the appropriate property tag on top
of the property area. In one of these property panels one may find properties to
change font faces and other font properties.

The font faces are arranged in font-families. A simple click on one of the
''font family'' tags will show you all existing fonts in that family.


Selecting a font family immediately shows all existing fonts in that family.
With a single click on one of these fonts the font is selected and applied
right away to the selected text on the [[canvas|Canvas]]

On the [[Composer's|Composer]] left hand side one will find a menu listing menu items to place
objects on the canvas. These are [[Symbols]], [[Pictures]] and [[Basic Shapes]] but as well
pictures as a useful addition to your designs. These pictures provide clipping path's,
so that the photographed objects actually will appear as objects on the [[canvas|Canvas]].


Here an example: the "People" menu.

[[Selected objects|Pick Object]] may be moved around on the canvas. Click on the object
with the left mouse button, keep the left mouse button pressed and move the
mouse. The object will follow the mouse movements.

Moving objects beyond the canvas borders, pictures behave different to
symbols and text. Text and symbols overlap into the adjacent canvases,
pictures do not! Pictures always are cropped at the canvas borders.


The object may as well be moved more precisely with the cursor keys.


and even more precise pixel by pixel by simultaneously  pressing the ''Ctrl key''.


Several functions can be applied on objects. A double click on an object will
open the object menu in the upper right corner of the [[YourBox]] composer.


There one will find all the functions one may apply on the selected object.


Each function may as well be triggered with keyboard [[shortcuts|Shortcuts]]. Next to each
menu item the appropriate keyboard shortcut is shown in a gray symbol.

Some menu items will open an additional submenu specifying the function in
greater detail. To copy an object to antother canvas for example will ask you
for the destination canvas.


The alignment function will ask you how to align relative to the canvas.


These menues appear as well when the function is triggered with the shortcut key
but then as a popup menu directly pinned to the selected object the function is
supposed to get applied to. Here as an example the key ''a''.

Clicking on any object in the canvas the object is selected. The object's property panel
opens as well in the lower right corner of the [[YourBox|]] composer.


The selected object will show a bluish dotted border.

On the [[Composer's|Composer]] left hand side one will find a menu listing menu items to place
objects on the canvas. These are [[Basic Shapes]], [[Symbols]] and [[Images|Pictures]].

Uploading your images is very simple. Click on the menu item ''Image'' and the
''upload form'' will open. 


There you can click on "Browse" and a file explorer will open. Here you may browse
for the picture you want to upload from your computer. 

The [[YourBox|]] [[Composer]] accepts many different image  formats.
*JPEG Joint Photographic Experts Group, Extension ''.jpg''
*PNG Portable Network Graphics, Extension ''.png''
*GIF Graphics Interchange Format, Extension ''.gif''
*EPS Embedded PostScript, Extension ''.eps''
*BMP Bitmap Picture, Extension ''.bmp''


With a double click on the image of your choice, the image file path will be copied into the ''upload form''.

A final click on "Submit" will bring your image right onto the canvas.


Your picture may be treated like any other [[Objekt|Objekt menu]] You may [[scale|Object scale]], [[move|Object move]] or [[rotate|Object rotate]] it.

Pictures may be scaled arbitrarily, but will not overlap into the adjacent canvases.
Selected objects may be rotated in three different ways.
* In steps of 15°
* with a slider  in steps of 1°
* typing exact values
Objects ([[symbols|Symbols]], [[pictures|Pictures]], [[images|Image Archive]], [[text|Text]]) have geometry properties.
Selecting an object immediately opens it's property panel showing the
geometry panel as well.

You will find three widgets to enter the rotation angle. An angle selector
like a compass rose, a slider and a number field.

Objects may be scaled in different ways.
* interactively with the mouse
* interactively with the mouse keeping the ratio
* with numerical data
* in percentages in relation to the canvas size
Little blue arrows will appear at the object's edges and corners.

When scaled bigger than canvas width or height, pictures behave different
to symbols and text. Text and symbols overlap into the adjacent canvases,
pictures do not! Pictures always are cropped at the canvas borders.


Clicking on one of these arrows with the right mouse button, keeping it
pressed and moving the mouse will dynamically change the object's width
and height. Pressing the CTRL key simultaneously will keep the image ratio
unchanged, scaling the image without deforming it.

The object properties in the lower right corner always show a geometry panel.


In this panel the exact width and height may be entered in the fields ''W'' and ''H''.
Sizes are relative to the canvas size of 740x740 pixel.

These fields accept values in percent as well. The percentage is relative to the
canvas size. Values greater than 100% are valid. Objects may be scaled bigger
than the canvas dimensions. Objects scaled bigger than the canvas dimensions
of 740x740px will overlap into the the adjacent canvases.

The symbol between the fields ''W'' and ''H'' show two chain links. Clicking on this
symbol will connect the chain links. Changing width and  height of an object with
exact values typed into the fields ''W'' and ''H'' will now keep the aspect ratio of the

In addition you may use the mouse wheel for selected objects to scale the
object keeping the aspect ratio as well.

On the [[Composer's|Composer]] left hand side one will find a menu listing menu items to place
objects on the canvas. These are [[Basic Shapes]], [[Pictures]], [[QRCode]] and Symbols.
Symbols are all imaginable pictograms.

[[YourBox|]] has a lot of Symbols. They are arranged in categories.


Picking a symbol is like picking a [[basic shape|Basic Shapes]]. Select the class:


then pick the symbol

To add Text is particularily easy with the  [YourBox|]] [[Composer]].

For your text you have the choice
*of different font styles
*of different fonts in these styles
*to change font properties
The text is typed into a simple text editor. Launch the editor with a click on the
menu item ''Text''. For technical reasons the text editor shows a first text, which
may be removed and says so.


Type your text and click ''Save''.


The text will immediately be placed on the current canvas with a preselected font.


Now the font style and font face my be changed with the property panel.
Aligning the text may be achieved right in the text editor window.
Aligning text does only make sense for text with more than one line. 

Aligning the text object relative to the [[canvas|Canvas]] may be done, as with
any other object, using the menu item [[align|Align Object]] in the [[object menu|Object Menu]] or
with the short cut key ''a''.

In many cases designs require to stack objects on top of each other.
In these cases it will sometimes be impossible to reach objects sitting
below an object on top of all the others. It might even be impossible
to click on the canvas itself, because it is entirely covered with objects.


To unselect an object might be impossible as well, because the only reachable
object covers the whole canvas. Clicking on the object will keep it selected and
there is no unselect option whatsoever.

The keyboard shortcut ''h'' resets all selections and selects the current canvas.

Clicking on objects after having pressed the key ''h'' will open a  pop up menu
showing all objects stacked upon each other at the  mouse cursor position.
From this menu one may now pick the desired object.


The pop up menu shows thumb nail images of the objects stacked upon each
other at the mouse cursor position, as well as the layer number and the object

Click on one of the boxes displayed on the [[YourBox|]] homepage 
and you are just one click away from the  [[YourBox|]] Composer.


from there click on one of the boxes in the "click and design" menu.
