Styling guide for text-add-ons

Text add-ons are primarily used as artist riders. Artist riders can be merged with a selected contract template, so that the contract and artist rider form one document.

You can access the text add-ons via System Settings > Template Settings or via Personal Settings > Template Settings

Characteristics of text add-ons

  • Text add-ons are Word format only. No other formats are supported.
  • The maximum file size is 2 Mb. If a text add-on exceeds 2 Mb, we recommend downsizing any images that are present in the text add-on.
  • Only one text add-on can be linked to a contract at a time. Separate files (like for instance technical and hospitality riders) need to be merged into one file.


The text add-on follows the styling that is used in the contract template. To ensure that your text add-on and contract template are consistent in lay-out and font usage, we recommend using the exact same styles in both documents.

A good practice is to use the contract template as a basis to start from and work with the styles that are defined in this contract template. To do this, you copy the contract template, save it under a different file name and adjust the content.

Header and footer

It is recommended not to use any headers or footers in the text add-ons as the header and footer from the contract template are applied to the text add-on. Therefore it is recommended to remove all content from the header and/or footer in the text add-on.

Bullets and numbering

The use of bulleted and numbered lists is not handled well in the text add-ons and can lead to unexpected behavior in styling, so it is recommended not using these.

If you want to use a list with bullet points, you can insert a symbol and choose a bullet:

If you want to use a list with numbers, you can type the numbers in an ascending fashion with their content:
