Thanks for your response Andrew.
I don't have a PTP 2.0 license, currently working with 1.8. I will consider upgrading,
I thought perhaps you'd acquired your PTP licenses very recently in which case you would also receive a PTP 2.x license
but I was under the impression that it is yet to be released?
True...PTP 2.x is currently in Alpha 15 stage of development - incomplete with some bugs. But you can trial it, indeed you can even buy a license and use it as-is for production work.
So many people begged Kolor to make licenses available that they have.
If you wish to trial it then use the contact form to ask Kolor to register you on the Kolor VIProom forum set up to support PTP 2.x pre-release testing and use, when yiouy will find downlaod links and peer support (ther are now nearly 400 registerd in that forum), with input from the developers.http://www.kolor.com/contact.html
From some reading I have done on the KRpano forums, I thought that I would simply be able to drop some of the XML code that KRpano outputs onto the XML file that PTP creates in order to use the KRpano skin. I don't have any experience in code so hoped there might be a simple way to do this.
I don't consider any XML code hacking to be 'simple'.
I believe that the krpano MakeVT droplets generate code that's structured quite differently from that created by PTP 1.8. And the code created by PTP 2.x is also structrued quite differenly from that created by PTP 1.8.
I expect it is possible by editing the XML created by PTP 1.8 but be aware that such changes will be overwritten each time you build the tour. And should you succeed it's unlikely that the experience and technique will be transferable to PTP 2.x.
