How to Create Digital Menu Boards with Lira Screen Template Editor

The digital menu board template editor of Lira Screen has certainly been one of the most important add-ons that we have created for the system. 

With this editor, you can easily design a menu board template of your choice. Or, you can go on to edit an already created template that we have in-built in our system.

16. You can also import your own food images to create the template. The images that you upload from your side can be seen in the My Images section – the last option that you see for the image categories.

17. There is no limit to the number of images that you can use inside a template.

18. We also have many layering options to work with. 

  • ‘Bring to Front’ will bring the image to the top or front of another image. Similarly ‘Send to Back’ will bring the image to the bottom most layer.
  • ‘Move Up’ and ‘Move Down’ will work in case of multiple images. Let’s say if you have three images layered one after another, Move up will bring the image to the top by one layer, tap on Move up again and it will bring the image up by another layer. Same goes for Move Down.

Save all the changes on the template. Link the app to the device directly and get going if you do not have a playlist. 



19. Playlist:

  • Once the menu board template is created, set and configured, tap on the ‘Playlist’ section on the left panel.
  • Enter the details of the playlist and tap on ‘Add App’.
  • Select the menu board to be displayed in the app pop-up with a list of menu board templates you created and save the details.

20. Scheduler:

  • Go to the Scheduler section in the left panel and tap on ‘Create Scheduler’.
  • Add ‘Regular’ or ‘Event’ based scheduler as per your needs.
