Custom Node ID

Pano2VR Pro

Here you can create custom IDs for each node in a tour in Pano2VR Pro. For example, the custom ID can describe a room in a tour of a house:

To use, select Direct node access in the HTML Normal Template.


Tags are used to organize images within a tour and to help trigger skin elements.

To add a tag, type a word or string followed by space, comma, or tab. The tag will be set and is now ready for another to be added. Click the red X to delete the tag.

The tags can be used to filter in the Tour Browser or within a Node Marker.

★ You can drag & drop tags from the User Data panel onto other nodes in the Tour Browser to assign the tag to these nodes.

Auto Tags

Each panorama is automatically given a set of tags to help with filtering and to provide some useful information. Tags can be anything from No Title to Has Polygon Hotspots. When you have many nodes in a Pro project, you can use these Auto Tags to filter in the Tour Browser.

Assign a Color Tag

Pano2VR Pro

Tags can be assigned colors for easy tag identification in the browser and User Data panel. Right-click any tag and choose Assign Color, then select a color from the list.

Once a color is assigned, the tag will be colored and the color will be seen on on the image in the Tour Browser.
