Z-Layout Scanning Pattern

  • The page structure is different from the F-layout page structure
  • Sometimes referred to as ‘1 2 3 Action!’
  • People in the western hemisphere read pages from left-to-right
  • When they arrive at the right side of the page, they jump to  the left side of the page to start a new line
  •  The image allows the reader to cut diagonally across the page to the next line or hierarchy placement, see page Figure 1.
