Most coaches purchase PlayMaker Pro to create their playbook. Along the way, they discover they can use it for a lot of things. Handouts are very similar to playbook pages. Drill cards are just plays drawn large, printed in the landscape page format.

PlayMaker Pro documents can have one or more pages. A document can be Portrait or Landscape in orientation. Portrait documents are oriented up and down like a piece of paper and work well for playbooks and handouts. Landscape documents are oriented horizontally like a wide screen TV and work well for drill cards and presentations.
