Assumptions I made about the angles of arrows were wrong, and now I just cannot see any way to edit them. Searched the forum for the answer without success.
I also found that the preview window of the selected spots on the tour tab likes to return to a slim view after you've resized it for the previous image. There's no reason why it shouldn't maintain the size of the previous pano.

But now I need to replace that style in the Spots Library. Click on 'Save in Library' generates another iteration of that arrow's name in the Spots Library with the next available number appended to it. So now I have 2 arrows with the same icon and name with only a number to differentiate the angles!
- The arrows icon needs to rotate to the correct angle in the library to improve usability/visability
- Shouldn't 'Save in Library' give you the option to overwrite or save under a new name?
I'm not finding this styles interface the slightest bit intuitive. The headings, subheadings and options need more differentiation in font size and/or style to indicate structure.
Is there any online manual I can refer to because this is hurting my feeble mind. The Help menu points to a 'Work in Progress' page.
Before investing in this software last week, I evaluated the alternatives. Pano2VR Pro seemed reasonable, especially since I already have the basic version, but parts of the interface were a little too quirky. Now I'm wondering if I made the right decision!
My needs at present are to create a pretty basic tour. The only feature I want is the ability to support smartphones. Can I start from scratch in v1.8 and open this in v2.0 to build? Guess I'd better try it, rather than waste any more time with this styles interface!

It may be logical, but it isn't intuitive. Intuitive would have been a left to right flow, with a clear structure, and less distracting side bars (I hate the design of those scrolling side bars).
