Publish using my developer's account

Truman Kong 4 years ago in By Screen / Publish • updated by Inna Komarovsky (Administrator) 3 years ago 4
About using my own developer account, and do the submission of the App on my own. Will the InteractBuilder be able to generate a standalone compiled App for me to publish it on my own? Since I have only made a testing running App using InteractBuilder and SHARE with my colleagues. The process is done automatically, and are working just fine. Can I do it manually? And using my App developer account?
Hi Truman,

Yes, when you're ready to publish your app, you will have the option of publishing it through your own developer account or through the InteractBooks account. When you test the app and share it with others, it is not yet in the app marketplaces, so it is not published through anyone's account technically, but when you want to publish the app, this is when you would use a developer account.

Let me know if this answers your question : )

Add visual display of all elements in library

Charmaine Anderson 4 years ago in By Screen / Design • updated by Ezra Weinstein (Administrator) 4 years ago 0

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.  


Add Export .pdf or ebook version option?

Charmaine Anderson 4 years ago in By Screen / Publish • updated by Ezra Weinstein (Administrator) 4 years ago 1
Not sure how difficult this would be for you to add to as an IB3 option, but it would be awesome if one could export a .pdf or ebook version of one's app so that one could also offer a version to those who prefer reading content on their Kindle for example, so one could sell it on Amazon.com.
I realize one would probably loose a lot of the interactivity and animation, but if it retained the static images, text and audio that would be rather cool.

Thanks for considering.

Should be available in version 3.5. It will be a premium member feature.


Advantages of Wireless Router

  • Wireless router provides you with wireless internet access;
  • You can hook up your computer to other computers and entertainment equipment, like your HD television and gaming equipment.
  • It provides speed which is important in watching movies, gaming, uploading and downloading files. The modern network switch in your wireless router is the wireless access point what will connect you to computers and other network devices;
  • Wireless routers can be connected to anywhere in the immediate environment or home as you can log on or surf the Internet within the surroundings; and
  • Since most wireless routers have built in firewalls, you will be able to ward off intruders. Use the configuration options of the firewall for security and privacy.

Manage elements toolbar

Melissa Lind 5 years ago in By Screen / Design • updated by Ezra Weinstein (Administrator) 4 years ago 4

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.



Planned for version 3.5


intersections not logging

Melissa Lind 4 years ago in By Screen / Design • updated by Inna Komarovsky (Administrator) 4 years ago 2

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.


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.


Save Text Styles

SeanB 4 years ago in By Screen / Design • updated by Inna Komarovsky (Administrator) 4 years ago 7
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.

Add background color to text box

Charmaine Anderson 5 years ago in By Screen / Design • updated by Ezra Weinstein (Administrator) 4 years ago 0

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

Erase not working as expected

Charmaine Anderson 5 years ago in By Screen / Design • updated by Alin Alexandru Matei (Support) 5 years ago 0

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.


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.


Privacy Policy for IB3?

Charmaine Anderson 4 years ago in By Screen / Publish • updated by Ezra Weinstein (Administrator) 4 years ago 0
I'm going to be putting together a privacy policy for my app, but I'm not sure what IB3 is doing behind the scenes from a privacy standpoint that I can share with parents and be compliant with the COPPA standards.  Can you please craft a statement that users of your software can include in our privacy policy that will assure our customers of what data is being collected about them (if any) and how that data is being used?  I'm sure other IB3 users would appreciate having a blurb like this they can use with confidence.  Thanks for considering!
