Align and Space settings

Settings > Viewing & Editing

The following setting affect the way align and space commands are applied.

Spacing applies within multi-facings

This setting determines how products are spaced. It applies to the following commands:

·         Space Horizontally

·         Space Vertically

·         Pack Left On Shelf/Row

·         Center On Shelf/Row

·         Pack Right On Shelf/Row

·         Fill Shelf/Row Width

 

Checked: Individual facings are redistributed in space. All gaps between facings within product blocks are also adjusted to match the desired distribution. Use this setting if you want to obtain an even spacing between each facing, no matter if they are part of a same product block.

Unchecked: The entire facing blocks are redistributed in space to match the desired distribution. The gaps between individual facings within blocks are however maintained as in the original. Choose this settings if you want to obtain an even spacing between product blocks, while being able to adjust separately the spacing between facings within blocks.

Examples of both settings are shown in the next sections.

The following commands distribute products and shelf tools within the physical width of the corresponding shelf (shelves) or row(s).

See Align and Space Items for usage.

Note: you can also apply these commands to items placed across several shelves, rows and bays. The command is applied to all selected items but independently per shelf / row.

Note: if you have allowed Shelf Lateral Overhang / Back Panel Lateral Overhang where the selected items are placed, PlanogramBuilder still tries to fit the items within the physical bounds of the shelves / rows. But if the selected items only fit on the shelf / row with an overhang, the minimal possible overhang is applied.
