Learn how to make a magazine

Your magazine starts out with blank pages that you can freely edit exactly the way you want to. So much freedom can be overwhelming. To get a feel for how the online editor works we recommend these steps:

  1. Click ‘edit’ on a page of your choice
  2. In de page editor, navigate to ‘Template’ in the upper left corner
  3. In the Template menu, navigate to ‘Dear Friend’, and click on ‘Page 2’, then ‘Use this template’

The page now appears in the editor. This page is a template for a table of contents, and it’s a good way to play around with how Jilster works. You can move, edit and change everything you see. Upload your own images and swap the template’s images for yours. Edit the text, check out the fonts available and click on the ‘Theme’ tab on the left to look at various backgrounds and illustrations available to you in the editor.
