It would be awesome if IB3 builder users could customize the IB3 builder UI based on our own global preferences. Such as allow us to decide which panels we prefer to load initially or use most.     

Also it would be nice to set project wide preferences on fonts, size and colors and also define Headline title  body content size, etc (such as a style sheet).  

Another idea is to consider offering pre-built templates one can use for each project type that only requires a wee bit of customization.

Thanks for considering.  

Answer

Planned for version 3.5.  Version 3.3 will actually offer the ability to import pages from one app to the other which is similar to what your idea for templates.  Version 3.5 should be released towards the end of this year or early next year.  Version 3.3 will be released by the end of the month.

It would be nice if you could see all of the elements in your library via a scrollable slider and be able to select the desired element or entire frames of an animation and drag and drop the one you want to use into your page. Sometimes one wants to reuse assets and if you have several hundred elements its easy to forget where you used the one you want to copy and reuse.  Thanks for considering.

I LOVE the manage elements toolbar. Really great flexibility. The one thing, that could improve it is if it were possible to move the toolbar out of the way. Sometimes I forget what I'm doing if I can't see the layout and the toolbar is usually right in the middle.


Thanks!!!

I am unable to pull up an intersection after I've entered it to make changes. When I press the intersect button it shows there are no intersections. The interaction still occurs in interact mode, but I'm unable to make changes.

Answer

Try going to another page and then go back to the page you want to create the intersections. Press the intersection icon now, it should work.

Like the Highlighting feature, it'd be nice to save your Text properties (font size,color,style,alignment, drop shadow) as a style for easy reuse.

That's a good idea.Thank you for the feedback post.

If possible, please consider enabling a text box to have a either a solid color or a percentage of a solid color background. Not sure if this is already possible as I don't see that as an option. 

If this is possible, also enable an offset of the text from the colored box so there is a little padding between the edge of the colored box and the text.  Perhaps also enable an outline color around the text box and allow user to specify how thick the outline should be.

Thanks for considering this.

Planned for version 3.3 or 3.4.

Not a bug

Not sure if this is a bug, but I want to create an eraser element that user could select to erase part of their drawing.  When I assign On Drag >Drawing > Erase and view in Interact mode, when I go from drawing with another element and then select  the eraser element, and drag it, it erases itself, and not the drawing I wanted to erase.  For example, I want to have several colored crayon elements the user can choose to draw with and also an eraser they can use to erase what they don't want on their picture.  Thanks.

Answer

At this moment it is not possible to erase an element while Dragging another one( like the eraser). What I suggest is that two have two erase elements. For the first element the behaviors:

SetEraseMode to On,

TapHide self

TapShow the other erase element.

For the other erase element have:

SetEraseMode to Off

TapHide Self

TapShow the other erase element.


Also if you want an example you can check page nine of A Day with the Butterflies example book app.

Let us know if you are still having problems.

Could you provide us some details like:
-on what OS this situation happen?
- was in InteractBuilder (InteractMode) or in InteractPlayer.
-what kind of animation it is: a frame animation or a graphical element animation?
-the behavior for the other element.
Thank you for your feedback.

It would be nice to be able to specify exactly how fast the fade in takes place and how long the object remains in view before it fades out.  For example, I'd like the fade in to happen much more quickly than the default fade in, as it is too slow before the object displays.  So greater control on the fade in and fade out option would be nice rather than the currently method of setting the time for the entire fade in and out.  I've tried changing the duration of the exiting fade in and out but the fade in is the same slowness.    The reason is I would like user to click on a static element and have it play a larger animated version of the element.  And I want to use a lot of static elements on the screen. Because kids will keep tapping elements quickly, I need the elements to fade in quickly, display object for longer than the fade before they fade out.

I have a page where the reader paints with their finger and change color by touching paint brushes in different colors.  I also have an eraser on the page which I can't get to work as i would like. Currently it will erase if I set it to erase but if I use set erase mode it erases the eraser, in either case  I would like the reader to be able to paint, then hit the eraser and erase what they want and then hit a paintbrush again to begin painting without having to change pages to reset the page. If that is possible would you please explain how to do this?  I could not find it described in the user guide or any posts.

Thanks,

Ann
