Customized icons for hotspots

by pbetancourt » Tue Dec 31, 2013 10:21 pm

It would be very nice to have the ability to choose any image (from local drive) to replace the default hotspot icons.
I know that this can be done later, replacing the original files at finder/explorer level; but every time you need to do a change to the tour, the customized ones are overwritten. In fact, it would be great to have this possibility on every single image that the skin is using.
That would give us much more freedom for customizing our tours.

Many thanks!

.... but you can do all this with the new PTP V2.. You can create your own hotspots and add them in any Tour.. You save them into Your User Directory. Its not like V1.8.. You can open up your Tour and continue anytime and all of your buttons and themes will be there..

Hi Destiny!
I'm using V2, but I didn't notice that disabling the "use icon from Library" enables a new window to choose an image from local drive.
That's exactly what I wanted!
It would be very nice to have this on the control bar, social share, compass, etc

Many thanks!

If you go to your Documents folder, you will find a folder called Kolor.. In that is your own theme template setup.. Once setup, you can add them into PTP GUI for call anytime..

You might want to read this... "Advanced Notions"

http://www.autopano.net/wiki-en/action/ ... umentation

You just need two main code files, the plug_info.xml and the #.tmpl, you can copy and edit them.. In PTP V2 you have the option to create your very own themes with hotspots and menus etc and use it anytime... Unlike PTo V1.8, where you had to keep replacing your own code after editing your Tour...

This is advanced stuff, but its the true power of PTP..

Many thanks for your support

It would be very helpful for me.
But don't worry if you don't find it, I'll do my best to do it on my own.
I'll post if I need help.
