Tech Tip: Delete Jobs, Images and Other CreativeStudio Tricks

Posted: 2/21/2019

We get lots of calls and questions about how to manage content in CreativeStudio and get the most efficient printing out of Virtuoso Print Manager. Here are some of the top questions we hear from customers and answers to help make your experience using CreativeStudio easier.

How Do I Delete Stored Images or Designs?

You can look up your old jobs on your CreativeStudio User Admin page, which can be accessed by the dropdown located on the top right corner of the screen in CreativeStudio Online Designer. It is a gray tab with your username on it.

Once you click on it, a dropdown list will appear. Choose “Administration.” This will bring you to the User Admin page. The “My Images” tab will allow you to search for and delete multiple image selections. You will also have the ability to individually rename your images. Click the “Edit” button to do so. The “My Templates” tab will allow you to do the same with your saved templates

How Do I Delete Old Print Jobs?

You can look up your old jobs on your CreativeStudio User Admin page (see the tip above for instructions on accessing). There is a list of tabs across the top of the screen that will bring you to different options.

The “Jobs” section of your User Admin will allow you to search for jobs, sort by job name and date created. From this page, you can also rename, delete or print your jobs.

How Do I Print a Page with Multiples of a Single Image?

You just designed a coaster image, and now you want to print 12 of them. There are two ways to do this. The first is to click on the “Print” button in the upper right-hand corner of your screen. You will be prompted to name your print job and choose if you want a bleed line included. Once you are done with that, a new screen will say “Save Complete” and have a “Click here to print” button. Click on that button to send your image to Virtuoso Print Manager, which will open immediately.

Once Virtuoso Print Manager is open, click on the “Jobs” tab and set the number of copies you want to make of your design. The preview to the right will show one print per page. Click on the “Layout” tab next, and select “VPM Preforms Layout.” You can now choose what size paper you want to print on, and the preview will arrange the number of prints you want onto the fewest pieces of paper needed to accommodate the prints. You can also add in spacing on this screen. Once these settings are complete, make whatever additional settings necessary for your prints and then click print

The second way to print more than one copy of your design from CreativeStudio is to save your print job by sending it to print. When the program prompts you to “Click here to print,” do not do that. Instead, got to the “Jobs” tab of the CreativeStudio User Admin page (see instructions in the first tip). Once you’re in the “Jobs” tab, find your design and enter the number of copies you want print. Then, select “Print” at the top of the screen. This will open up Virtuoso Print Manager.

Once Virtuoso Print Manager is open, click on the “Layout” tab and select “VPM Preforms Layout.” You can now choose what size paper you want to print on, and the preview will arrange the number of prints you want onto the fewest pieces of paper needed to accommodate the prints. You can also add in spacing on this screen. Once these settings are complete, make whatever additional settings necessary for your prints and then click print.

How Do I Make Sure Virtuoso Page Manager Knows What Size Paper I Want to Print My Designs On?

When you start using CreativeStudio’s Product Wizard, you will be asked to choose a paper size. First select the product you wish you decorate, which will bring up template options.

Then you will be asked to choose a page size and orientation. Here, select the size paper you will be printing onto when done with your design. When your design is sent to Virtuoso Print Manager, go to the “Layout” tab and make sure that “Preserve Layout from Designer” is selected. This will center your design on the page and eliminate potential errors.

If you are printing a job through the User Admin screen, you will have to select the page size you wish to print to directly through Virtuoso Print Manager. When the program opens up after you select “Print” in CreativeStudio, go to the “Layout” tab. Select “VPM Performs Layout.” This will activate a dropdown menu that will allow you to choose a paper size. Select the size paper you want to print to, and then click “Print.”
