Position Formats

Last Updated: 17 Dec 2015

Position Formats allows you to create a Bodycopy for a specific position in the list. This allows you to change the look and feel of a particular asset in the list without affecting the other assets. For example, if you want to make the text for the first asset in the list to be bigger and have a different colour, you can create a Bodycopy for position 1 and change the format for that asset.

Tip: You can use the Asset Positions field on the Details screen to specify that a certain asset should always appear in a certain position in the list.

Creating a Position Format Bodycopy

To create a Position Format Bodycopy, right click on the Asset Listing in the Asset Map and select Display Formats. In the Customised List Position Formats section, enter the number of the position you want to format in the New Position Format field and click Commit. A hyperlink to the Bodycopy asset will appear in the Customise List Position Formats section, as shown in the figure below.

The Bodycopy will also appear under the Position Formats Folder in the Asset Map, as highlighted in the figure to the right.

You can create a Position Format for any position in the list, for example you can create a Bodycopy for position 10. You can also create a Position Format relative to the last asset in the list by using negative numbers. For example, if you want to format the last asset, enter -1. If you want to format the second last asset, enter -2.

Editing a Position Format Bodycopy

To edit a Position Format Bodycopy, right click on the Bodycopy in the Asset Map and select Edit Contents. Click on the  icon – the WYSIWYG Editor will appear where you can use keyword replacements and formatting to layout the information to show in the list. By default, the Asset Name Linked keyword replacement will appear in the WYSIWYG Editor.

Deleting a Position Format Bodycopy

To delete a Position Format Bodycopy, right click on the Asset Listing page in the Asset Map and select Display Formats. In the Customised List Position Formats section, click the Delete box for the position format that you want to delete and click Commit. The Position Format Bodycopy will be removed from the Position Formats Folder in the Asset Map.
