Panotour Pro - Project Properties - Extra

     This documentation is for version 1.8     


The Extra tab contains a list of configurable elements that can be added to the tour.
If nothing is set in an item's options, this one will not appear in the tour.


MAP

This lets you display an image in your virtual tour that will act as a map.
This image will automatically be added in the interface's center window.
Selecting this image from the center window will make it appear in the Hotspot editor so that hotspots (points only) can be added and connected to other panoramas.
The spots and the radar added on the map are hidden when the map is closed.


Plan

File

  • Use the Select icon to open a folder browser. Here you can select the image that you want to use as a map.
  • The Remove icon lets you delete the selection if it is not suitable. This does not influence the source file in any way.


Start open

  • If this box is checked, the map will be enlarged when the tour is launched.
  • If this box is not checked, the map will be displayed at a reduced size when the tour is launched. Clicking on the map will open it.

    • If one of the 2 values is not null, the fixed value will be used as a base to calculate the null value in accordance with the image's ratio.
    • If you add 2 values, Panotour Pro will force the values with the risk of distorting the image.
    • You can add these values in pixels (fixed size forced) or in percentages (the size of the virtual tour display area).
