When you log in for the first time, here's what you'll see:
This is your dashboard. From here, you can either:
We'll try out both, but let's start with the template.
(Later on, we'll set up your brand colors and fonts. Skip ahead to Step 3 if you'd rather do that now.)
Step 1: Start with a template
Qwilr is loaded with ready-made templates for all kinds of documents.
Let's build a practice page from a template.
Choose what you need your page do to, and then scroll through the available templates.
When you see one you like, click Use Template in the top right corner.
(If you'd rather build your practice page from scratch, jump ahead to Step 2.)
Now let's customize that template.
Everything you see, you can edit. Highlight any text to change the words and formatting.
Want to change a background image? Click the Swap Splash button and choose another.
Want to change background colors, spacing, or alignment? Click the Block Style button.
Make a few changes to your template to practice these editing tricks.
(If you want to customize your brand colors and fonts, jump ahead to Step 3.)
What a great page! Let's share it.
Want to see what your client will see? Click the Preview button anytime:
When you're ready to share your page, click the Share button:
Make sure your page is Live, and then copy the link:
Now you can paste the link into an email or message so your client can view it.
Nice work! Let's kick things up a notch now...
Step 2: Build from a blank page
Now that you've tried a template, let's build a practice page from the ground up.
It's a great way to see just how flexible Qwilr is.
Click the Qwilr logo in the top left corner to go to the dashboard again.
Click the Blank Page button to start a new page.
Whoa, a blank slate. What now?
Don't worry, you've got this. You'll build your page one Block at a time.
What are Blocks? Think of them as page sections that do different jobs. Like these:
Try adding some blocks.
Let's add a Splash Block to your page first.
Choose a splash image from our gorgeous library.
Now, add a nice heading.
Good work! Now let's add a Text Block.
Now that you have a couple blocks in place, let's see some other things you can do with them...
Let's change things up.
You can edit any block from the menus in the top left corner.
The Block Options menu lets you do things like:
The Block Style menu (which you might remember from Step 1) is for customizing colors, alignment, and spacing.
Give it a try! Use these menus to make some changes to your two new blocks.
Step 3: Setting up your branding
Qwilr makes it easy to give your pages a consistent look.
When you establish your brand fonts and colors, they'll automatically apply to all the pages you create.
To get started, click on your initials in the top right corner. Then choose Set Up Brand.
What are your brand colors?
You'll start with 2 default colors, and you can add more. Choose from our menu, or enter your hex codes.
How about a font?
If you're not sure which fonts to use, try our Font Pairings, which are pre-selected by our designers.
