Newspapers, magazines, and some books may use multi-column layouts. And although Photoshop does not support columns, Customer's Canvas does. Customer's Canvas can load and render multi-column text blocks, define a number of columns in a text layer, or provide a user with the ability to change it.
To add a multi-column text to a template create a rich text layer and insert the
<TCC_x> marker to the layer name, where
x is the number of columns to divide text into. For example, the
<TCC_2> marker divides the text into two columns. It should not confuse you that columns are not displayed in Photoshop - it does not support columns.
When the template is loaded into the editor, the columns are displayed and the number of columns can be changed. Columns are automatically resized when the width and/or height of the text block are changed. The size of any column cannot be changed manually.
To prevent a user from changing a number of columns use the
<TACCC_f> marker. If you want to create a standard (rich) text layer, but provide a user with the ability to convert it to multi-column use the
<TCC_1> marker. Also when a user adds a new rich text layer to a product, the layer has one column by default.
The gutter (the gap between columns) has fixed size of 10px.
