How to copy artwork text and image details for current artwork

  1. Use the Share icon to open the Artwork Dashboard page on the screen for sharing text and images

Using the Share Screen features

  1. From the drop-down menu select the field you want to include then use the Add Selection to Template button to place it into the Template. Place tabs between items by selecting the “Tab” item available in the drop-down menu. This way, you’ll be able to reinstate tabs once you’ve pasted the result into your word-processor by adding tabs to the word-processor text-ruler.
  2. Manually enter your own text where required. For example, if you want the phrase “Artwork:” to appear before each occurrence of the title of the artwork then you’d place… Artwork: <<Artwork Title>> …in the Template. On Desktop devices use your formatting menu to select typeface, type size and text styling.
  3. Use these buttons to copy text, download images or compose emails with text and images.
