Toggle Action

Moshe Caine 5 years ago in By Screen / Interact • updated by Ezra Weinstein (Administrator) 5 years ago 0

Suggest a toggle action, i.e. an on/off function. 

Would be very useful for switching visibility, sound, movement etc. on and off.

Answer

We will be adding a new element type Button in version 3.5 of the app expected release towards the end of this year or early next year.

Add Show Rulers, Show Grid Option / Snap to Grid / View Outlines - to help align assets

Charmaine Anderson 5 years ago • updated by Ezra Weinstein (Administrator) 5 years ago 0

If possible, please consider adding a "Show Rulers, Show Grid and Snap to Grid" option and maybe also a View Outlines option to help one visually align assets on the stage vertically and horizontally rather than having to view the target coordinates in the info tab.   

Answer

We are definitely planning to add this in a future build.

Quiz behaviors

Moshe Caine 5 years ago in By Screen / Interact • updated by Inna Komarovsky (Administrator) 4 years ago 6

Built in quiz behaviors could greatly enhance the educational functionality of Interactbuilder. For example the following types:

Multiple choice questions

Match pairs

Arrange objects in order (big to small, fast to low, etc.)

Fill in the blanks.




Answer

Actually most of the examples that you are mentioning can be implemented using the current software.  I think it would be a good idea for us to create some samples of these to show the community how this works. I will ask my team to work on some samples.

photoshop layers

Melissa Lind 5 years ago in By Screen / Design • updated by Ezra Weinstein (Administrator) 5 years ago 1
The layering trouble when importing photoshop files with new layers seems to be working better. They used to come in out of order. Nice work!!!

Love IB3 so much. It is so swanky!

App Preference

Serge Patry 4 years ago in By Screen / Manage • updated by Ezra Weinstein (Administrator) 4 years ago 0

Hi!

Can it be possible to introduce an app preference that would allow us to chose the % of the design window when it open’s all the time. Now the design window open at 79% so each time I have to select 100% for the design window.

Coloring book feature enhanced

Anita Sølver 4 years ago in By Screen / Design • updated by Alin Alexandru Matei (Support) 4 years ago 2
I have read some of the posts about coloring books/coloring pages, and I think there's room for improvement to Interact Builder in this area. No need to make things so complicated :)

The ability to make the kids pick colors is fine.
But the way we have to make a coloring page is not so great, in my opinion.

What I would like to see is two things:

1) The ability to let the lineart be on top, and let the kids color freely beneath it. That would be an awesome feature. It could be done by somehow locking the top layer with the lineart, or have a target layer for the kids to paint in.

2) Be able to place a lineart, and then click on areas between the lines that are meant to be colored (a bit like fill color in photoshop with the paint bucket), and add the fill color action (or even free draw within this restricted area).

If #2 can't be done that way, then at least be able to place the lineart on top, and place the files premade for the individual areas underneath, so we'll have a nice and crisp lineart, that can variate in thickness and so on.

Should the last part be the solution, I would really, really like to be able to make the images all the same size in transparant png's, and thus import and place them all at the same time. This is not possible now, since when I am clicking on the canvas (let's say on an apple), it chooses whatever file is on top, because it also selects the transparant pixels, and not just the filled ones.

It's just not very logical the way it works now, and it involves an insane amount of work to make a coloring page with more than a few details.

If any of this is possible already, then I'd love to be pointed in the right direction, since coloring pages will be part of the apps I plan to make, in addition to stories and other activity.

Thanks for reading :)

Publish Option - Number of Screenshots

Charmaine Anderson 4 years ago • updated by Inna Komarovsky (Administrator) 4 years ago 2
I noticed on the Publish option one can only upload 3 screenshots, the Apple iTunes store allows one to upload 5 screenshots… Please enable 5 images to upload as this is very important to help sell one's apps, especially if they are feature rich. If this is already possible, please advise.   Thanks for considering.
