Regions define areas on a Layout which hold Widgets (media content) to form sets of timed content.
Ensure that the Layout has been ‘checked out’ to enable editing.
Click on the ‘edit’ icon located in the top right hand corner of the Layout Navigator window to open.
Regions can be positioned anywhere inside the Layout canvas using drag and drop, and resized by using the resize handle located in the lower right-hand corner of the Region.
Click in the Region to resize and position, further actions are available via the tabs on the Region Options form.
Complete a name for the Region and use the checkbox to Loop the content, for that Region if required.
- If your Region contains more than one Widget, Loop should not be enabled.
- If your Region contains one Widget, and that Widget is a ‘fixed’ item (eg Text), Loop should not be enabled.
- If your Region contains one Widget, and that Widget needs to update periodically (eg RSS Ticker Widget), Loop can be enabled ONLY if the Widget needs to update MORE frequently than the duration of the overall Layout.
This tab allows for precise sizing and positioning as well as setting a Layering Order. Make the Region full screen by clicking on the text which will display the dimensions the Region will be set by.
Please note: Overlapping Regions is not supported for Windows Players.
If required, overlapping Regions can be ordered for playback using z-index settings.
These are set from the Positioning Tab, by entering a number in the Layer field to determine the order that Region should be shown within the overall stack.
The ‘Layer’ order is determined by the number entered here, with 1 considered the lowest Layer. The higher the number the higher the Layer.
Exit Transitions happen when the last media item in a Region is shown and occurs only when all other media items have expired in the other Regions.
Once you have Saved your edits click Close to return to the Layout Designer screen.
Regions can be added in two ways:
open the Layout Navigator window and click on the Add Region button.
select Tools on the bottom toolbar and click on Region to add or drag to the Layout Navigator window.
Remove Regions and all associated content by clicking on the Delete Region button in the Layout Navigator window. Please note: This action cannot be undone.
Control which User and User Groups can view/edit/delete the Region. Click on the Permissions button, located under Tools on the toolbar then click or drag to the target Region. Edit the Permissions form as appropriate.
Please note: The owner of the Layout has full control over sharing.
