General functions and spreadsheet interface
Before we start explaining what each button on the spreadsheet corresponds to, and what interactions are possible, you need to know a few important points:
Each column corresponds to a layer in your template, and for some of these layers you have sub-columns corresponding to specific layer parameters.
The first column corresponds to the background color of your format
Each row corresponds to a new variation of your template that will be generated
If the cell is empty, we automatically retrieve the default value from the template during generation.
You cannot define a different content for each format selected for generation, the row content will be applied to all selected formats.
Add Empty row button
The "Add Empty row" button lets you add a new empty row to your spreadsheet, which is useful for adding a row in which you will only modify the layers and their parameters you wish to change.
All cells that remain empty and therefore unchanged, will automatically take on the default content and parameters present in your template, for each format.
Add row with default properties
The "Add row with default properties" button lets you add a new row with the default value you've entered in the template editor in each cell.
Delete one or more row
Select the rows of your spreadsheet you wish to delete by clicking on their numbers on the far left, and you'll see a checkbox to tick as you move your mouse over them.
Once checked, you'll see a trash can icon appear next to the add empty row button to delete the selected rows.
Duplicate one or more row
Select the rows of your spreadsheet you wish to duplicate by clicking on their numbers on the far left, and you'll see a checkbox to tick as you move your mouse over them.
Once checked, you'll see a double card icon appear next to the add empty row button to duplicate the selected rows.
What are the different parameters of the layers I may encounter and what are their particularities?
Each column have one or more subcolumn that correspond to a parameters of your layer, there is some rules to follow for each of them to fill it correctly
