The only available option is to show the first sheet
In situ not even available
Other merchandising options do not work

When I tile photo images for this product, no matter what I do, the very top and bottom row of images is trimmed a bit. Is this expected behavior for this product? I mention this because I don't have this same issue when tiling photo images on other products. Take a look at and you will see what I mean.

Hi northwestphotos, your design extends beyond the bleed line so that is why it seems to be trimmed from the product. I believe this happens whenever you tile an image in the design tool so this seems to be expected behavior. What products did not produce this behavior? Thank you Smile

I opened your product in the design tool and decreased the size of the image slightly. The top and bottom ended up not being cut off, but then the design was cut off on the sides. I think the problem is caused by the image not being in the same proportions as the design surface.

I am using standard jpg images as I have always done with my other product designs. I usually don't have any issues when tiling them with other products. For example, the other wrapping paper that comes in rolls. I don't have any issue with images being cut off when tiling them on that product. https://www.zazzle.com/pink_double_hibiscus_floral_wrapping_paper-256149900411463250

The problem must lie with the product dimensions I suppose. But customers won't be able to tile their photo images with this new product. I also tried with a square photo image and the same problem happened.

My own tiling on wrapping paper will often get sliced up either top and bottom or on the ends. I can resize, and in some cases depending on the type of tiling, shift the design, but I figure that, when wrapping a package, the edges are often tucked in or hidden, so we may be worrying over something that doesn't matter.

My thoughts exactly!

It is slightly annoying that the first single design view is the default, when clearly the set is a feature, but I could select the set from the very beginning.



Though I had to edit the view option with this one because the insitu with the bow switches to default single design. Once I learned of this behavior I picked the set view and correct the selection when I don't pay attention and accidentally have the single first default view.
¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Yes, would love to be able to show the in situ picture with the wrapped presents and bow. It won't show it and it isn't even an option in the Edit function.

LOL - I didn't even realize that picture showed wrapped gift boxes until I read your posts, I thought it was a folded set of the papers tied with a string. Now I went back and I can (just barely) see that they are supposed to be wrapped gift boxes. It would be nice if they were photographed at more of an angle or even stacked vertically to the viewer instead of from above, since in the overhead view you can barely see all three patterns.

Oh for goodness' sake. That's what I thought too! LOL

I thought it was just folded papers too. Laughing I thought wow, that's a real fancy way to show off papers. LOL

It definitely would be nice if we could get an angled view. Smile

I just created a set and had it set to insitu but it reverted to the front view. When I go back to change options insitu is not there.

In Situ is not used for posting for sale. I choose SET and it posts just fine.

In Situ can be used for forum posting, website posting, by using Share Link (chain) if you are on In Situ view before clicking Share.

Gina do you mean on this particular product? With others I have posted for sale with the insitu view.

Some do allow it. This one doesn't allow it. Don't know if Z will change that. There are many that do not allow for In Situ posting (Throw blankets for instance). Throws used to allow it, but that changed long ago. I can't name off the others at the moment.

I like these new sheet sets, but they are missing something the gift wrap rolls had: "Tile" Design placement.

You can tile an image, but with the tile design placement feature you can tile a whole layout with images and text. It's a fantastic feature.

Any chance we can get that added to these?
