Hi, i've read iBooks Author Widget tutorial and it works well but on iPad full screen display i see my VR not in center but on left below.
Please, can you explain parameter in HTML5 export to obtain a best full screen center display on iPad Landascepe/Portrait mode?
Thank You.

HI,
Can you provide a screenshot of what you mean?
In iBooks Author you position the HTML Widget container in the book, tapping the preview image open the panorama.
In iBooks Author I set it so you can not rotate the panorama, this means you only see it in landscape even if you rotate the iBook.
This can be found in the Widget Inspector, select Disable Portrait Orientation.
Also use the inspector to position the image while in portrait orientation, Wrap.
Regards,
Hopki

Hi,
OK there seems to be a problem with the Object widget, so please go back to the tip and download new ggt files. Also updated Pano2VR's ggt file.
Please find attached toy project that works ok with new ggt file.
Regards,
Martin

Hi
I have been having the same problem with object2VR in iBooks Author, i.e. the image appears enlarged and is cut off in the viewer window.
I downloaded and replaced the HTML5 template ibooks.ggt with the new one from 12th March.
Now, nothing at all appears in the template menu. See screenshot.
Iv'e tried uninstalling the software and reinstalling a fresh version. No help.
By the way, in Pano 2VR, the widget works fine!

Hi,
One, follow the tip regarding finding the Object2VR templates folder: http://gardengnomesoftware.com/wiki/IBook_Widget
When the HtmlTemplates folder is open you should see the html5 folder.

Now open the html5 folder and you should see the normal and ibooks.ggt files.

If not I have added the html5 folder as a zip,

Just unzip and add the .ggt files.
