I would like to be able to draw a line and have an animated element follow the drawn path, the path would not be visible in interact mode but act as a guide for the object to follow. For example, the object would fly into place on load and then on tap it could go to the next point that has been designated on the path for the element to follow on tap. This would be a curved line rather than a linear line. If there is another way to do this, please advise. Thanks.
We are absolutely planning to add this feature in a near future version (probably late summer).
Could be a good idea, just like clean cache, to have a button that scans the resources in the books folder and delete whatever is not used. The folders are getting larger and larger whenever one deletes an animation or a bitmap and loads it again. It all duplicates and there's no way to delete the duplicated items. Even if I delete them manually I still see them in the lists of images/audio files I can use, which is confusing.
In version 3.2 during the Share and Publish process we actually cleanup the final output so only the elements used in the app are in the app that is shared and/or distributed.
It would be great if the 4 buttons of elements order (bring to front, back, up, down) will be accessible all the time without the need to open this toolbar every time I want to change order. I find that I use those a lot, and as such, they need to be available all the time.
We made the menu bar persist on the screen so you can keep visible at all times.
Animations in InteractBuilder are created by a sequence of image files. These are triggered by an interaction such as tap. Once triggered, the animation activates all images in the sequence at the predetermined rate.
An interactive animation, on the other hand would be activated by dragging. as the finger drags from left to right the animation progresses. When the dragging stops, so does the animation. Dragging from right to left will run the animation in reverse order.
This is analogous to the "image sequence" function in the Adobe DPS, or a VR object.
Just something to think about, but I would love to have a quick button for both the user guide and to empty the cache. I'm finding that I use them both often, and I lose my train of thought when I go looking for them.
Just an idea.
Good suggestions, only challenge is that we are trying to keep the screen real estate pretty clean. We will definitely consider this suggestion.
We will be adding a small icon on the bottom of the design screen in version 3.3, due for release later this month.
Is there a way to add background music that keeps playing when you turn the pages? If I want to have a song play from page 3 to 12 for example.
Updated to the Bug category after comparing with another one of my apps. The other one gives me a solid black screen when I click on its icon on interactplayer.com.
So I can view neither app. Please advise!
Can you please automatically select the first target in the "manage action sets" dialog when one clicks on a new action set (or uses the up/down arrows)?
It is more user friendly that way. You can navigate the cations and immediately see the animation parameters of the (first) target, which is usually the main.
Please consider adding the Disable Page Flip Backwards / Forwards option to a global Navigation setting, instead of only at the page level. I have 85 pages and I don't want to have to do this to every single page! The reason I want to do this is I want to kick people to a main menu at the end of each section rather then force them to click through all 85 pages.
Planned for version 3.4.
request: to be able to take a picture with iphone or ipad (or other reader devise) and have it insert the pic into a specified location on the app.
Planned for version 3.4 (towards end of the year)
