After having finished our first single-folio publication, there’s one thing I felt shy off in the Overlay Creator possibilities.
It would have been great to allow a pan & zoom frame to go fullscreen on tap. Such a feature being optional, it would allow either an in-frame pan&zoom-browsing of the image, or a fullscreen mode similar to the one available with video (with a ‘ok’ button appearing on tap and quitting the fullscreen mode). This would allow more flexibility in layouts, allowing thumbnails to lead to a fullscreen pan & zoom, thus profiting from the whole screen area and providing a more immersive experience.
For now, I have been playing with an ersatz for this, using MSO to get from a thumbnail to a fullscreen image (and you can’t zoom further in the big picture), but it turns out to be very heavy and having several of these work-arounds in an article can make the browsing very slow (on ipad rotation for instance).
I hope this is possible in a near future, for our next app perhaps…
Btw, thanks for all the work put in constantly improving the tools !
It works to go full screen with a messy mso object, but the other overlays which are "beneath" that fullscreen mso f.e. Scrollable containers doesnt seem to work anymore then. So better just have a fullscreen slideshow with nothing more special in(under) it.
I have it working with vdeo underneath and it works just fine, but not scrolling content, when I get a chance, I will see if I can get it to work and let you know. maybe they will get this going in v21 or 22
