The Playbook Settings Menu

When you use the FastPrint feature in FastDraw, or when you create a custom playbook, by default your playbook will be set to print one frame on each page. You can adjust the formatting of your playbook by clicking the Playbook Settings icon within the Preview Tab.

Play Options - The Play Options section is where you can control how many frames are included on each page using the Frames per Row and Rows per Page settings. A good starting point is to set your desired Frames per Row, and then set your Rows per Page to Auto. This way, FastDraw will analyze the content of your plays and determine the best number of rows to use to give your playbook the cleanest look. This can take into account things like how much text is in the Frame Description, whether you are using full court or half court diagrams, etc.

Play Labels - Just like you can set the Title and Subtitle for your page, the Play Labels allow you to control how each frame in your playbook will be labelled. These play labels will appear directly above each frame.

Full Page is the name of the default Playbook Settings in FastDraw. If you choose Save Changes to Full Page, the current settings will become the default for all future playbooks. If you want to save the current settings under a different name, choose Save as New Print Settings and give your settings a name.
