Panotour - Interface - Main Window 180

The central window lets you see the all elements of a project (panoramas, hotspots, links, etc.) and select them so that they can be edited.
The panoramas are represented as thumbnails, the hotspots as circles, triangles or squares (according to type) and the links between the panoramas as arrows.
