    Edit Template Run-Time Options
    These options allow you to add and/or hide specific functionalities from the Dynamic Templates editor. For example, when you have strict branding guidelines you can remove specific functionalities, so that users have less flexibility to deviate from your branding. When a richer set of formatting and styling options is desired you can use the run time options to extend the functionalities within the editor.

    Below you'll find the most common used run-time options. Enter one or more of these settings with the desired value in the Template Run-Time Options text box. Comma separate the settings in case you add multiple. For example:
    enableImagePaletteOptions=false,showTextPalette=false,maxFontSize=150
    • enableImagePaletteOptions
      Allows you to specify whether image editing options in the image sidebar are enabled. These options include preserve aspect ratio, rotation options, advanced options, alignment, arrangement and frame to content.

      The default value is true and the acceptable values are true or false
      Example:
      enableImagePaletteOptions=false
    • allowTextScaling
      Allows you to specify whether users can scale text frames by dragging the corners and sides of the frame. The font size will be adjusted accordingly.

      The default value is false and the acceptable values are true or false

      Example:
      allowTextScaling=true

    • showTextPalette
