The ability to modify the layout and look of your printed playbook can be accessed by clicking the Playbook Settings icon in the Preview tab. The Playbook Settings menu is where all of your playbook customization is going to take place. By default, the menu is set to a streamlined, "Basic" layout that is designed for a quick and easy experience for new FastDraw users. If you are interested in taking advantage of the full array of customization options, however, then you will want to change to the "Advanced" Playbook Settings menu.
Activating Advanced Playbook Settings
From the top menu bar, open the File menu and select Program Settings, and then click on the Printing tab. At the bottom of this menu, check the option for "View Print Settings in 'Advanced' Mode" and then click OK. Now when you open the Playbook Settings menu again, you will see many more options.
If you typically make a lot of changes to the layout of your playbook, we would also recommend checking the option for "Add apply button to allow modifying print options before redrawing". Normally when you change anything in the Playbook Settings menu, your playbook will immediately redraw with the new settings. With this option checked, the playbook will not be redrawn until you click the Apply button at the top of the menu. This speeds up the process by letting you make all of your changes at once before redrawing.
Playbook, Chapter, and Section
At the top of the Playbook Settings menu, there are tabs for Playbook, Chapter, and Section. Playbook will always be selected by default, and being on the Playbook tab indicates that you are making global changes to the settings of your playbook. Every change that you make will affect each chapter and section in your playbook.
By clicking the Chapter or Section tab, you will then be able to select individual chapters or sections to edit. Changes made to your selected chapter or section will not affect any other chapters or sections of the playbook. Additionally, any changes to a specific chapter will affect the sections within that chapter, unless otherwise edited from the Section tab.
The Frame layout setting, which is available from the Play Options section of the Playbook Settings menu, gives you several different layout settings to choose from. The "Plain" setting gives you a standard grid layout with the description underneath, while the "Side-by-Side" layout gives the frame description next to the frame. In side-by-side, only one frame can be used per row.
The Page Options section is where you will change the layout for everything other than the actual plays and diagrams in your playbook.
