With Malgr Proposal we offer a separate set of special templates where publications can be exported to a PDF file. These Printable Publication templates adapt their size to a desktop, tablet, mobile and A4 (landscape) print view. In the Maglr editor you can manage, create and adjust the online version & PDF print version from one central source.
Editor Print View
While you are editing a Printable Publication project in desktop view, our editor automatically converts what you have created in the desktop version to a suitable PDF version in print view. When in Print View of the editor, the user is able to see and edit the print version of the publication to their needs.
NOTE: Adding, removing or editing content in Print View will not affect the Desktop/Mobile version of the publication.
It is important to know that editing content a printable publication from a desktop, mobile or print view will affect the publication in different ways.
Editing content in:
- Desktop View - will affect both the mobile and print view
- Mobile View - will not affect desktop or print view, but only the mobile version
- Print View - will not affect desktop or mobile view, but only the print version
Disabled elements in Print View
For example, if you add a video in the desktop version, the video will appear in the mobile version but not in the print version. Simply because a video won't work when it is exported to a PDF print version. It is better to remove the video in the print version and replace or refer to it with an optional link to the video. Therefore, it is good to know what elements are disabled in Print & PDF view.
Show & hide elements in Print View
The same thing goes for pop-ups. When you are creating a desktop version, a pop-up is an interactive way to hide and reveal relevant content. But a print view is not suitable for a PDF print version. Therefore, our special templates will convert these pop-ups to static content blocks that have their own space on the page in print view.

PDF Page Break
When you want to structure the PDF preview, users are able to insert a hard page break. The PDF Page Break feature is ideal to keep your content organised for print view and will move content on to the next page as a starting point. Learn more about how to insert a PDF Page Break.
Once you are satisfied with your printable publication in all (desktop, mobile, print) views, then we recommend previewing the print view by generating a PDF version. This is done with the Download PDF button in the page overview in your dashboard after you have published your publication to the latest version.
This version represents what your audience will see when they download and export the PDF or when you send the final version to your audience. It is a good idea to always check the PDF preview after making new changes to your publication. Just to ensure that nothing is out of place.
