Easily move pages within Pictavo using tools available in the Ladder accessible from the Dashboard.
The Ladder can also be accessed from pages, but it is best to be on page #1 so you don’t interfere with the page move.
Select the page or pages to move and click the Move icon in the blue bar across the top of the Ladder.
NOTE: If you do not see the Move icon, please speak with your yearbook adviser.
Once the Move Pages window appears, enter the destination the page(s) will be moving to. Press OK and the page will be moved.
For example, if page 131 needs to become page 138, choose the location: Before and enter page 139, as shown, or choose the location: After and enter page 138.
Moving multiple pages works exactly the same way. If pages 18-21 (shown below) should become pages 22-25, choose the location: After and type page 25 or the location: Before and type page 26.
While moving pages, you may come across the message shown below. This occurs when moving an odd number of pages that would break a linked spread. Consider moving an even number of pages, or identify the linked spread(s), unlink the pages and then re-link the pages after the move is complete.
NOTE: For help finding and unlinking spreads, check out the article about linking pages.
This message may pop up when moving pages while other users are actively working in the book. To resolve this ask the other users to save their work and logout or visit the Dashboard until the page move is complete. If that isn’t an option, you can move two pages at a time, selecting both pages of a spread, even if the pages aren’t linked, allowing them to be moved without interfering with the pages that are being worked on.
NOTE: If the user is on the spread that needs to be moved, they will need to leave the page designer for a moment.
