All settings concerning document layout (e.g. company logo, language etc) can be stored as a “Document theme”. The basic concept is that during the creation of a new document you can select its profile so that it can be reset according to settings you have determined on the theme. 

Document themes management 

To view and manage your document themes you have to visit the relevant page from the main menu Settings -> Document themes. You can create an unlimited number of themes.

Default theme 

Every new Elorus account has a theme – titled “Default”- which you can customize and use right away. Its only difference compared to the themes you create, is that it cannot be deleted.

Document theme settings

Default and live settings

The majority of a document themes settings are default and are copied on to it upon creation and then can be customized per document. Take for example a document’s language. Upon creating a new document, Elorus resets the language to the one determined by the theme. Following, you can change it through the document’s preview page. This change will affect this particular document and will not have any effect on the document theme you used.

In this way, every new document you create will have as default language the one set in the theme. Likewise, if you alter the theme’s default language, none of the already issued documents will be affected.

Every setting that is not customizable per document is called a live setting. An example of such settings is the company logo and activity. In case you alter a live setting, this change will affect all issued documents using that theme. Hence, if you change the logo in the initial theme; the new one will appear in every document published using that theme.

Elorus gives you the ability to change a document’s theme after creation. In this case, all live settings will still be visible on the document, except for the default ones. Therefore, by changing a document’s theme, the company’s logo and activity will remain the same, without altering its language or template.
