  13. 13. Editing the Template <ul><li>You may want to change the “theme” or design layout from the one that I used— </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Do this FIRST (before you start typing in information or adding photos). </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Changing the layout/colors may affect the placement of text boxes, etc. So it’s better to do that before you have actual info. in the text boxes. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Click “Brochure Options” and/or “Color Schemes” in the gray area at the left. </li></ul></ul>
