I'm having a problem saving layouts.

I want to create a layout for a 5x7 greeting card (10x7 paper) that prints a 4x6 image (1/2" border all around, after the fold). I can get QImage to do exactly what I want via the edit page option.

However, when I save the result as a layout (I don't want to save a specific image, just the layout) and then subsequently call the layout using Print Properties>Custom>Layout the resulting layout always includes the original image used when I saved the layout. If I remove the original image & attempt to substitute a new one, I'm basically back to GO (without $200) and have to use the Edit Page again to get what I want. I thought that Jobs included the image and Layout did not.

I've saved templates in the past without this problem and obviously have forgotten how. Help - please. (Searched archives but didn't find what I was looking for before giving up).

Thanks.

Hi Ed,
When you create a layout, don't use a real image but the blank "[Template]" image that is always at the end of the thumbnails.
Treat that as a real image for size, borders, text etc. and then save as a Layout. You can have as many "template" images as you like on a page.
Use the template as you have said from Custom; you will then be able to drag & drop images onto the template  Cheesy
