The Properties section is where you can edit each element and change the way it behaves through actions. All the properties are grouped in collapsable panels.
◊ TIP: To make editing easier, you can also detach this panel to get a floating window. Go to, View > Detach Properties View.
Depending on the element that is active, the properties will change. Learn more about each element’s properties:
- Rectangle Element Properties
- Text Element Properties
- Image Element Properties
- Button Element Properties
- SWF File Properties
- SVG Image Properties
- External Image Properties
- Hotspot Template Properties
- Node Marker Properties
- Sound Element Properties
The skin settings are available when nothing else is selected. To deselect an element and return to these settings, click in the outer part of the canvas.
Width & Height: This will adjust the canvas’s width and height, measured in pixels. To get a better idea of how your skin will look on output, set the size to the project’s output window size.
Grid: Adjust the canvas’s grid in pixels. For example, a setting of 10, will create a grid of 10 pixel squares.
Use margins to set extra space outside of the panorama window (Top, Bottom, Left, Right) to display elements outside of it. These elements could be anything from maps, thumbnails and buttons. See more: Skin Editor Margins
