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 !
I completely agree. It should be a given option, to make any overlay object or MSO full screen.
I'm loving dps, but hat having to make some strange MSO's to get images to be "full screen".
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
