AD+Sign Pro

A Page is where your digital signage content is added to be shown on your AD+Sign DS-1 Player. A Page's properties include:

Property Description
Resolution (W & H) Pixel width and height of the Page. Typically matches the pixel resolution of your Player's connected display.
Background Colour Hex colour value of the Page's background.
Text Colour The default hex colour value of the Page's text. Can be overridden in certain Element settings

Each Player creates its own Page, named 'Default'. This page cannot be removed and serves as the default page for displaying content. Global Pages can be assigned to multiple Players at once, see Global Resources - Pages for more details.

Creating Content

Find the Player you wish to create content for, click it to navigate to its Preview page. Click the Edit Page button to navigate to the Canvas.

In the top-left corner of the page are the navigation options for navigating to other pages within the application.

The majority of the screen is the canvas view, where you can zoom and pan around the canvas to view your content.

On the bottom of the screen is the Elements Panel, where you can add Elements to the Page.

The right portion of the screen is the Properties Panel. This is where options for individual elements will be configured.

Using Page Templates

When first editing a Player's default page you will be prompted to try using AD+Sign Page Templates. These are pre-configured and fully editable pages containing a variety of content for you to make your own.

If you are editing your Player's default page and cannot find the AD+Sign Templates button next to the zoom controls, make sure your page is completely empty.
