Configure your publication:

  • Publication Title: Assign a unique title to your publication to help you identify it later.
  • Page Size: Choose a preset size or customize the width and height to fit your specific needs. The recommended "Mobile" size is what we believe works best for mobile-first content.
    • You have minimum dimensions of 40px and maximum of 30000px.
  • Design: As usual, select either the "Single Page" or "Brochure" layout based on your preferences.
    Click: Confirm settings and create the publication.

After setting up your publication, you'll be directed straight to the Publitas Editor, where you can start creating and adding enrichment elements as usual.

Customize your content

Background color:

If you want to change the background color of your publication instead of the default white, head to the right sidebar. There, you'll find a color picker that allows you to choose a background color for each page, even if you have a brochure layout.
